Paneer Tikka Masala update

Here is, as requested by les Baerts, a quick update regarding the paneer Karsten made during the weekend. Yesterday, he used it to prepare a Paneer Tikka Masala. It was, as usual, a typical Karsten dish: total chaos in the kitchen, quick moment of panic as soon as the first things started to sizzle in the pan and an absolutely delicious meal in the end.

Regarding the cheese: it turned out to taste very good, yet the texture needs to be improved next time. I guess we didn’t compress it long enough, so it partly desolved into small crumbs again while marinating and frying. Still, as it was our first self-made cheese I think Karsten can be proud of himself!

Since the little cheese crumbs didn’t look as delicious on the picture as they were in real life (the differences between the pictures in the cook book and the appearance of the actual dish could fill a whole book…) I’ll leave it up to your imagination.

I did, however, take a picture of the kitchen while my dear husband was cooking, and one ten minutes later after I gave him a hand while he was having his sizzling-panic-moment…just couldn’t help it 🙂

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.

    It reminds me of our lab last year, except that it didn’t take 10 tiny minutes but a full day and three people to clean up the mess. I think you shouldn’t be allowed to work indoors Karsten.
