Paneer Lasooni

I love hoarding crockery and when I finally got some new ones after a long time, I was waiting for an occasion to showcase them.

We are vegetarian for 13 days as my Dad passed away recently and I keep trying to keep the food interesting for the kids. Searched for a new Paneer recipe and found and interesting video by Chef Sanjyot Keer.

The final dish Paneer Lasooni was lapped away happily by all at home. Definite add on in my menu.
