Now they are back in India I wanna get back to blogging. I am so happy to see so many new recipes and posts from all my friends.Will definitely try out some of yours.

Yesterday i tried a new curry i saw it on TV.I liked it as its rich and has very few ingredients, its called Paneer-Kaju curry.It tastes very good and nice for a party or a potluck.Kaju means Cashewnut in Hindi. Paneer is one of my favorite cheese, so I am always in for any vegetarian dish with Paneer in it.
