Chanar Dalna

Hello guys.. !! Hope all are doing great 😁 

Today i prepared a very typical bengali dish,called “chanar dalna” ! This a very simple recipe and perfect menu for dinner. Combination of potatoes,paneer & green peas. While in the main recipe green fresh peas are being used, but i had added dried peas,cause it’s not the peas season & frozen peas are not available today at our kitchen.. lol 😂 I used the recipe from a cooking book. It was quite delicious and my family loved it! 😊
