  1. I haven't eaten Desi food in ages but I wanted to make it for some Aussie friends who love spices. Honestly,just reading names like "Mutter Paneer" made me nostalgic and reminiscent of days when I used to eat this stuff everyday.I am thinking of substituting paneer for tofu. Do you think that'll work?
    Thank you for all the recipes and for my wonderful trip down memory lane.
