    Hi Thank you for sharing your Navratan Korma recipe.It was deliciuos.
    Could you be so kind and help me . 1.Can i freeze leftover korma. 2.How do i freeze paneer.

    • says

      thanks and welcome geeta. would not suggest to freeze korma. you can refrigerate and consume in one or two days. you can freeze paneer. just place the paneer in a closed box and keep in the freezer.

    I am an ardent follower of your blog…but of late I am unable to download the web pages of your recipes…especially the Diwali recipes…it says the page doesn’t exist and if I am trying from my phone some malware is getting downloaded. I request you to look into the issue. Your recipes are truly amazing and all the recipes I have tried have come out superbly. It has helped me to become a good cook! I hope it will continue to remain the same if the issue is solved…thanks a ton!

Best wishes and regards.
