With so many other commitments taking over me, elaborate cooking in the weekdays have taken a backseat. I keep on searching recipes that are easier and takes less time to prepare, colourful and suits my men's taste buds. Honestly, my senior is not so fond of paneer, but wraps are his favourite. So any filling wrapped in tortilla/ paratha works wonder for him. My junior is very fond of paneer. Yesterday back from work I had to go out... trying to balance everything, I settled on Grilled Paneer, served fresh wrapped in tortillas.
It was so easy and quick to do it. With Singapore heat on, people get tired easily end of the day. This was done so happily listening to my favourite music. Isn't that what I love doing most... music and cooking.... a soft melody, a meaningful movie feeds my soul, cooking gives me that satisfaction of being a mother, a wife. With my earphones on, I marinated the paneer and bell peppers with tandoori masala and yogurt. Again went out, came back and it was done in few minutes.
