Paneer Kofta

The last week has been quite on the blog but not so quite on other fronts. For one it was the week of spring break and the week of  ICC- world cup...!! first the anticipations of the semi-finals and finals then the nail biting matches...followed by the celebrations and the euphoria. Early mornings, endless supply of chai, screaming and clapping, multiple breakfasts, lunch and a wonderful time with family and friends. It was a great spring break...can't ask for more!! Team India rocks !!

Today's special is - paneer kofta. It goes great with saffron rice or some hot naan. Love the flavors of the curry...hope u enjoy it as much as we did ....
