Using Food Processor to Crumble Paneer

I love to use my kitchen appliances to the fullest. A food processor is one such appliance. I have to use it at least once (in fact more) every day.

And a quick recipe gets even quicker when you use appliances like a food processor. Onions, tomatoes as well capsicum, everything when chopped in the food processor takes hardly 1 minute (that too, when I chop these separately). And the best part is crumbling the Paneer! I know, you can use a grater or just smash it with your hands. But try it in the food processor and you will love it. Perfect crumbs, no paste-like and that too in just 2 or 3 seconds.
