After the month long Marathon, this comes as a shock. I completely forgot that there was hardly any time and no sooner it was time to start the next edition of Blogging Marathon
I wanted to have simpler themes so that it will be easy for all. For the first week, I chose to make Gourmet Gravies. And surprisingly I ended up making only with Paneer. Well Paneer makes a gravy a gourmet and I am sure you will agree with it.
While you might get bored with just paneer being showcased, my kids were not. All three gravies that I am going to share this week, are the latest craze and each I have already prepared couple of times.
This paneer kumar is a combination with sweet corns and kids simply loved the paneer and corn mix.
After writing long and never ending posts, I think I should give you a chance to breath!..:)
So enjoy this kurma!
