According to me cooking is an equal-opportunity talent and I find that anybody can cook. It is not limited by the age, profession, caste, colour or creed of a person. What is needed is the love for cooking. For me the passion for cooking does not stop in the kitchen, when I travel, I continue to be inspired by eating in some of the best restaurants around the world.

Hello Sir, I’m a 10th standard student who loves to cook. I have a doubt, can I use frozen paneer to make this dish? Thank you very much.

    Dear Meenakshi, First of all appreciating you for showing interest in cooking at this age. Eating yummy food is everyone’s dream and not many turn to make their own. Happy to know that such people exists :) Yes, you can use frozen paneer. Take it out from the freezer around 1 hour before preparing and let it soft. Or you can keep the frozen paneer in lower rack of fridge overnight and use. Thank you very much for the feedback. See you here often :)
