Kaju Paneer



Yesterday, I prepared Kaju Paneer with rotis. I was going to prepare Kadai Paneer but decided against it since I had already blogged the recipe earlier. For my readers sake and to cater to requests for party paneer dishes, here is a delicious creamy curry that is sure to be a hit.

    Hi Sailaja Garu,

    I am a silent admirer of your recipes and your site.

    I have come across a site corianderbistro.net/index.php which has copied your image of Punukulu with peanut chutney. Just wanted to let you know. I am not sure if they did it with your permission.

    Anyways, you do a great job with such a wonderful collection of mouth watering recipes. Even a simple recipe looks so amazing done by your hands. Your family must be very lucky and proud of you. Cheers.
