We were amazed at the response we got with a presence of 120 people and loved the interactive session we had.

Paneer Fajitas with Lettuce

Almost five months away from blogging, it took me a while to restructure my thoughts and come back with a recipe which is different yet suits the theme of my blog: International foods with a desi twist.
What better than an Indianised version of Fajitas, a popular Mexican dish. Fajitas are a Make It Yourself type of dish where they serve veggies or meat sauteed in a sauce, on a hot grill with tortillas, sour cream, and cheese to go with it on the side.
 They usually serve the vegetarian version of this dish with Tofu, in one of our frequently visited restaurants Jack Astor's in Toronto. My husband is not a big fan of Tofu and hence we decided to make our own version with Panner (Milk Cheese).

Perfect for a weeknight dinner our a quick game bite, this takes less than 30 mins to prepare. Enjoy this quick and easy recipe.
