Blogging Marathon# 29: Week 2/ Day 1 Theme: Pick 2 Ingredients & Cook from a Book Ingredients/ Book: Paneer & Greens/ 660 Curries Dish: Potato Paneer Methi Curry (Alu Paneer Methi Curry) My theme for this week's BM is 'Cook from a Book'. But to make the theme a little more challenging Valli asked us to pick 2 ingredients from a list and then find a recipe from a cookbook. I got lucky and found the recipes quite easily this time (unlike the last time).
