Wohoooooooooo...it's the 28th of this month, I was so eagerly waiting for it :) If you're a regular reader of JCO, you'll know why. Exactly, you're right...it's day when we all Potluck Party, Cyber Style members get together again, and prepare their partners dish and share their views about those dishes. I absolutely love this part of the challenge, because in the whole month I don't have to scratch my head too much about what to cook something new :p, when girls brings their dishes on 10th of the month, I do try all of them in my kitchen, however I post only my partners dish.
This month my turn to make Sowmya's recipe, Paneer Kalimirch Masala. As soon as I saw the recipe, I was almost drooling..as I absolutely love Paneer !!! She learnt this dish from a TV show. I am so glad Sowmya that you shared this dish with us.
Paneer Kalimirch Masala , utterly delicious and redolent with spices..almost tasty as Shahi Paneer or Butter Panner Masala. Loaded with cream, cashewnuts and yogurt was giving dish a very creamy and luxurious flavour while whole aromatic spices, spice up the dish. Especially the prominant taste of Black Pepper !
