    By the way, Jay, I made your Shahi Paneer last weekend ... remember I commented I was looking forward to try it?
    After eating my husband said - in quotes - "wah, maza aa gaya, ab Ohri's nahi jaana padega" ... Ohri's is a restaurant here :)
    Then I told him I got the recipe from your blog, he knows your blog since last year I had mentioned to him I was excited when you had written that ghee post :)

  35. Buttermilk is so easy to buy in the UK, but almost impossible in rural France unless you know a dairy farmer and I don't! I have never seen anything ever in the shops simply called curd:( This drink sounds delicious though Diane

  62. Jay, Yoghurt is not a problem. but where we live in rural France there are no Indian or Chinese shops. The supermarkets have a very small section for International foods but it is VERY limited. I will try it with plain Yoghurt and see how it goes. Thanks Diane
