Paneer Shashlik Masala

image

My husband absolutely adores paneer! He loves to eat it, prepare it and to cook it. So what better than to have a guest post recipe from him. He made this awesome masala yesterday for his birthday. I feel if you like something so much, automatically you’re able to make it soo well. This is extremely true for my husband!

He didn’t make it too spicy! knowing that our 3 year may want some, because he loves it too! and he was right… He nearly gobbled up EVERYTHING and we hardly got any! Lol 😉

So please be sure, if you have children, MAKE MORE!!! We’ve learn that for next time!!

Mix the tikka masala and yoghurt together

Pour over the ingredients and combine so that all the paneer, onion and pepper is covered

Cover and place in the fridge for 2 hours to marinade

image

In a large deep frying pan, warm up 1 tsp sunflower oil on a medium to slow heat. Cook the paneer through. This may take up to 10 minutes or more. Stirring occasionally

Once the paneer is soft and hot all the way through you are ready to devour

Serve up on a flatbread bread of your choice. We had a kidney bean curried flatbread I had made during the day

Thought For Thursday…

image

This quote really spoke to me yesterday when I came across it online.  We do think about the generations that came before us but I haven’t done so in this way.

We are all made of love, nurtured, fed, looked after and so the cycle of love and life keeps turning!

Such a beautiful and heartwarming thought ♡

Have a peaceful and love filled day!
Much love D x

My First Zebra Cake!

image

Busy and hectic weekend!  But I think I’ve cooked and baked more.  Also because my 3 year old has the chicken pox and he wanted cake, cake and more cake!
I wanted to bake something special for him and I came across this recipe on YouTube.  I’ve been wanting to make a zebra cake for a while and this was the perfect opportunity! My little one was ecstatic and to see the smile on his face…Priceless!

Here is the link to the simple recipe plus it’s in video form so can be easily followed..

Thankful Thursday

Yesterday evening I was greeted by a wonderful tweet from “Daddy’s Grounded.com” Husbands who must not be stopped!

I clicked on the link to find my husband’s praises being sung.  As you all know he loves cooking too and is my pillar of support!  He has contributed some gorgeous guest recipes that have been liked even more than mine!  I think he should start a blog of his own as he is always interested on how many likes and views he gets! 😉

I am so thankful for him and it is even more satisfying to see how appreciated he is in the blogging world.  Being titled as “Shivaay Delights’ Husband” made me giggle but also filled my heart with pride.
So here I take time out to say THANK YOU to my Husband! For everything he does!  My passion for Shivaay Delights is enforced by his love of food and him supporting me on this amazing journey!  Love you!

Be thankful today for all those you love and tell them!  It’s always nice to hear! Much love D x

This week I am super excited, meaning I’m more excited than usual lol! I have become an aunt for the second time and saw my little bundle of joy yesterday! You can really forget how small newborn babies are. All other things that seem to matter don’t matter anymore when you’re cuddling this new seedling. Congratulations to my brother and wife. Thank you for another cutie pie!

Now to even more celebration…My Fabulous 4 of the week!

Miss Marzipan…a beautiful and extremely talented cook. She describes herself as “A curious soul + a dash of inspiration, sweetened to taste = the satisfaction of creative DIY!”
“….a sweet-toothed girl (who also loves her veggies!), a grateful mother to a gorgeous toddler and a baby Cupcake (my nickname for her) and a quiet explorer who seeks the creative satisfaction of ‘doing it herself’.

Miss M also not only creates stunning dishes but also touches upon important questions that we would love to understand. A light and balloon feel like blog that just lifts your spirit as soon as you connect! Just brilliant…Enjoy…I know you will!

There are so many recipes that I wish to post of hers but I will just give you a little feel of what you’re about to enter and see. I know you will return again and again! http://pizzarossa.me/2014/04/21/pina-colada-macarons/
