This Lasooni Methi Paneer is by far one of the best curries I’ve ever had! With coconut milk creating a creamy yet light texture, this one, I promise, is better than that you would get at any top-notch Indian restaurant.
I was doing some casual reading the other day and I came across an article that said that most couples share a similar gene pool and they start to look more like each other with time. Their life experiences mold their physical appearances. This article had also had a photograph of an old married couple who, I swear, looked like fraternal twins! 😀 While Nachiket and myself do not look like each other, I can agree to the fact that some of our traits have rubbed off on the other. Will this eventually lead to us looking alike? Only time can tell! 😀
If you have shared an ample number of years with your spouse, may be you could check if your traits and appearances have begun to match? 🙂
Nachiket has started to cook. Sometimes, it is once in 2 weeks, sometimes it is twice in a week. There is no scheduled timetable he follows. And I like it that way because, if there was a pattern to it, it would have been more of a chore than a leisurely therapeutic hobby. What’s more? He even researches about what he wants to make. Now, wouldn’t you call that a quintessential trait rub-off between couples?
In short, my husband took inspiration from the internet, merged a few recipes, made a few changes himself and made the curry. While it was truly amazing, I stepped in, (the next weekend), and changed a few other things (like the earthy herb flavors, the light coconut milk to complement the flavors of garlic) and thus, we created this beautiful bowl of Lasooni Methi Paneer!
Since I strongly believe in modifying a recipe to the available ingredients in your pantry and to suit your taste, I have provided (as with most of my recipes), a few changes that can be made to our Lasooni Methi Paneer in “my take section”. Whether you want to make it vegan, or you want to make it rich and creamy or you cannot find fresh methi leaves, you can find it all.
