Desi Paneer Tadka

on June 10, 2015

Hello foodies !! I’ve been hibernating for quite sometime now 😀 And sorry about that 😛 Work got the better off me, and hardly found any time for making any new experiments 😦

Well, This one’s a simple recipe I discovered yesterday in “Veg recipes of India” website, It was actually paneer 65, but after I prepared this, The look of it made me give it a new name, So I renamed it as “Desi Paneer Tadka” 😛 Coz it involves curry leaves, which is my absolute fav ❤ The crunchy paneer pieces tossed in this tadka is an a bliss !! I am totally in love with this recipe, and would try it often henceforth 😛 I altered it slightly according to my taste, but nevertheless tastes awesome 😀
