There are numerous ready to make curry pastes available in market and its always a lingering thought that are these curry pastes as good as these sound?
Recently I became active on Instagram and I get to see lot of exciting posts. One thing which caught my attention was the idea of trying out new things which require baking. Initially I thought I will bake a Pizza with my own twist and I started looking for Pizza baking stone, and found this one from Hans Grill, I must add its absolutely a piece of beauty. In any case, I ordered this baking stone and when it arrived, I was happy chirpy bird (Who does not like new gadgets in kitchen?)! When I decided to bake my pizza, my girl said she wants to eat something different, so I thought let me give a twist to something she loves. She loves Paneer Patties , so this time I decided to make “Paneer Tikka Parcels” (पनीर टिक्का पार्सल), and this was something new for her as well, and I was assured that she will love it.

This one is made by mixing minced chicken along with spices and then frying it.
Prawn Fried rice is a meal which can be made jiffy, not much of fuss and guess if you a prawn lover, you will love it. This recipe comes from my partner’s bag.

This recipe is an Indian adaptation of Chinese prawn rice.
Rajma does not need any introduction for an Indian household. Likewise Kidney beans is widely known term in west too. Having said that Rajma has not been so popular as Chole (Chick Pea) or Samosa in west.
