Aarthi, I found your site via the blog of my friend Nancy Vienneau, Good Food Matters. I just subscribed to your blog and wanted to ask if you would go to my food blog and subscribe to mine. I will now check yours out every time you post and leave a comment if you would like to return the courtesy to me if you like my blog. I am in my 2nd year of regular food blogging and love it just as you do.

Hi sis. ...i have a doubt. .. y should we soak fried panner in hot water? I would like to know the difference. ...between 1.what happens when we fry the paneer and directly proceed with the procedure and 2. What happens when the fried panner soaked in hot water and proceed with the process. ..and how many minutes should the panner be soaked in hot water? Kindly clarify my doubt. ..as i can follow these procedures for my rest of the panner dishes. ....and i would like to say that i have tried many dishes from your blog. ..and that have come excellently...thank you :)
