Paneer Kalimirch

Due to rain our server is down and I was badly missing blogging since a day.Even now the network is very poor and I cannot access wi-fi.I found this picture of Paneer kalimirch in one of my old folder in my desktop and thought of sharing the recipe…Palkhi,a restaurant in Mangalore serves the best Paneer Kalimirch.Keeping that taste in mind I tried this recipe adapted from a site.This dish goes well with roti or rice…
         My last post was ‘How to weave Khotto’ and my next post was to be on ‘khotto’,but due to technical problems I’m not able to post today.My pictures are in laptop and the wi-fi is very poor,I will try to post once everything gets clear…
