My aunts recipes are really delicious . I had showcased her on my guest blog . After a long and tiring day yesterday, I wanted to cook something easy and quick ..had some fresh Paneer lying in the fridge and I thought of her Paneer koftas . Her tomato gravy had khus khus and magaz (melon seeds ) which I did not have handy so I matched my tomato gravy to coat her koftas.
