A very tasty and a healthy combo of paneer and mushroom.
Mushroom is the only source of Vitamin D for vegetarians and Vitamin D is the most significant nutrient for the proper absorption of calcium in our body. Here, I would like to highlight the fact that the body can not absorb calcium at all without some vitamin D. So, its good if we put some mushroom pieces in paneer (good source of calcium) sabji or paneer cubes in a mushroom prepartion.
