[Recipe] Sautéed Curry Paneer with Sugar Snap & Peas

Sauteed Curry Paneer with Sugar Snap & Peas

Hello my friends! How’s your Christmas preparation going? That’s the burning question for the last couple of days hey?

Today was the last working day of the year. I’m all set and ready to enjoy the holiday season with good food and good company although all I wanted to do after work today was to sit back and catch up on my favourite TV shows. When it comes to dinner preparation, easy and meat free was the way to go for me to compensate my over-indulgence in my recent trip to Canberra (you can check out some of the good eats I’ve discovered in Canberra via my Instagram @FussFreeCooking) as well as my work Christmas party at Lolli Redini and my beloved’s at Sweet Sour Salt.

So here it is, my first Christmas baking for the year with these super easy spiced gingerbread olive oil crinkle cookies!  I love spiced cookies this time of the year and these cookies are definitely hitting the spot. I was itching to bake a batch of cookies before bed last night so I tweaked this recipe to accommodate my spontaneous baking desire. You gotta love those late nights baking session hey?

The idea of making “rice” from cauliflower is both strange and intriguing. I am all for the idea of sneaking in vegetables in my diet but the idea of  a plate full of cauliflower in the absence of cream and blistered cheese topping ala gratin or crispy coat of chickpea batter may spell a risk of blandness and possibly, traumatise you with eating boring cauliflower.
