    That’s one delicious looking curry, not sure whether I’d like to use the word egg if I were not eating eggs. However, its an innovative recipe.

    Heard about paneer eggs before, though never bothered to know the process. Honestly this recipe sounds delicious and very creative idea, specially it is interesting idea to feed kids who doen’t like paneer.
