Butter Paneer Masala..

Now I understand why new mom's are so exhausted and tired every time... Before 2 weeks my life was so different and now my life is so exciting and busy. I use to finish my household work in the morning and then jump on blog and facebook for whole day till my hubby comes homes.. Now from the time I woke up and till I sleep I'm so busy with my little girl and I don't even have time to check my mails, Facebook nor write blog.. Actually this is what I wanted all this time and now its here... I got some time today and thought to do quick post about my recipe.
