Paneer and Corn Curry- A Tribute to Tarla Dalalji




Tarla Dalal was an India’s most famous and best cookery author. She was very simple and elegant lady with perfect professionalism and host two cooking shows like “Tarla Dalal show” and “cook it up with Tarla Dalal. Out of both, Cook it up with Tarla Dalal was my favorite show in childhood  telecast on Sony TV. Her first cook book, The Pleasures of Vegetarian Cooking, was published in 1974. You were such a big inspiration for me or even other foodie too who loves cooking and food. We will miss you a lot but will always be in my memories when I refer your portal or books. 


This time our Blogging Marathon family decides to give her tribute through cook and share one recipe out of her treasure. One of mine co-blogger Padma suggest this wonderful idea about giving Tribute to Tarla dalal ji. For this day, I create a logo which appreciated by all.


For this special day, I choose Indian main course recipe, “Paneer and Corn Curry”. Under this recipe, we have to prepare onion, tomatoes, curd based gravy with paneer and corn. It’s really delicious and flavorful recipe which you can serve as main course with Paratha or Naan.
