When Paneer gets a Thai Massage

Saturday, Saturday…… Time to put the thinking cap (chef cap) on to churn some veggie delight.

Why I keep a veggie fast on a Saturday? Nothing religious, just by choice to try out the veg offerings around the city and my kitchen. Rest of the week, I am strictly non-vegetarian.

Since, I was missing paneer and didn’t want to go the butter paneer way, I chose to give it some Thai massage. I know you would curse me that I couldn’t go beyond paneer (instead of Tofu for a Thai preparation) but trust me, I am sure you would love to experiment in your kitchen.

Put your apron on, and let’s start cooking
