Go Green with the Green Chutney!!

  DPP_0003 Go Green this summer…  around the bushy park or long walks by the riverside.. .. Love the bright evenings…Just wish this remains EVER, even in the coldest december …Knowing this can never come true in the wildest of my dreams !!!!  But I still wish !!!   Peak 25 C today  ..Woooof !!! Coated in sunscreen with 30 SPF and dressed in with as lil clothes as possible !! Mugs of beer gobbling down the gun throats one after the other , watching league foodball  and FB ‘ing  – Tats typical British Summer … Show it off Man!! When the green herbs come for a bargain at the local Indian store , making the Green Chutney is the easiest and the handy thing  . Spread them on to a toasted bread with slices of cucumber & tomato or use them up as a dip, its entirely personal choice… They pair very well with my Singara’s  too.

When I was having a quick regular conversation with her.. Thats when I got this sooper easy recipe !!

Paneer Tikka

 Weekend is the best time to try new variety food… After blogging for a while ,  I always prefer to do a variation in my cooking. Morever I wanted to treat 2 big boys – H & his friend yesterday who helped me doing quite a bit of chopping of vegetables for the week. With mylil one around , it is fairly getting difficult to chop vege’s finely on a day to day basis… So this was our first trial week for chopping in advance.

We picked up  farm fresh peppers from the market on the Kingston High Street.. Cant believe he sold me 13 peppers for a 1£  when any other popular grocer like Tesco, ASDA sold them for 60p each. Wot better treat could be rather than PANEER TIKKA full packed with Paneer( Indian Cottage Cheese) and Peppers.
