  1. I like paneer a lot. When choosing veg dishes in hotel, my first prefrence is always a paneer.

    I never had anything like curry leaf paneer rice. Hope this is your invention. If you say it can be prepared quickly then I would like to give it a try.

    And today Sushma, I am the winner. The first comment is from me. I said na... ;)
