For today's blog hop I am paired with Radhika of Tickling Palates and the brain behind the wonderful Blog Hop.
Radhika has a number of exiting recipes and I have bookmarked quite a few recipes. In fact I made this delicious Mattar Paneer (click here for the link) last Wednesday when it was "Avidhwa Navami".
Avidhwa Navami is celebrated in the Pitru Paksha or Pitru Pandharwada or Mahaal Mihina, for the people who do not know each day in this fortnight you offer your prayers and respects to your ancestors. On the Navami, that is the ninth day the ladies who have died before their husbands are remembered and you call a Suhagan to accept the gifts offered.
I am very lucky as one of my friends can accept these offerings and the best part is since she is also a working woman she comes over in the evening. The best part is there are no restrictions regarding onion and garlic. Thanks Kanchan you are great!
So I made Mattar Paneer. I have made it in the past but this recipe is exactly Radhika has made. Exactly, no not exactly you see I have a reputation to keep up. How can it be exact? The major difference is I have made it on stove top whereas Radhika has made hers in the microwave and a few minor changes to accommodate my situation.
I would have made it in the micro but I did not have a container to hold about 1/2 kg paneer, 3/4 kg peas so stove top it had to be.
