Chilli Paneer with Soba Noodles

Chilli Paneer with soba noodles is a favourite dish of mine. The soba noodles add a chewy texture and as unusual as it sounds, work really well with paneer. I don’t do tofu and I feel like this is a great replacement. I love that soba noodles can be eaten cold and I also love how quick they are to make but just slightly over cooking them can turn them into a claggy mess so you have 2 option, either have a bowl of ice cold water on hand or cook less then needed and instantly wash under cold water. I love paneer in any form. I love this chilli version, I love it with spinach, I love it in ravioli, i love it with peas, i love it with corn, i  love butter paneer, skewered paneer, paneer manchurian..basically i just love paneer. 🙂

By the way, have you noticed that the winter colds have already begun. People sniffling away. Kids coughing their lungs out. Red noses and runny eyes. I wasn’t expecting to see any of that until at least December.

By the way when i think of December, I always think of London. London in December is magical. That is the only word that can truly capture how brilliant it is. There was a time in my life where I was there every year. The shop windows alone are a sight to behold – so grand and boastful with all those festive colours and lights. Every year, my heart yearns to be there and then I look at the hotel prices and come back down to earth. I could always go stay with my cousins I suppose. Also, It’s the busiest time of year for my husband and I wouldn’t want us to go there without him. I do wish we had a little flat in London. I think I would be there all the time. I was speaking with a friend the other day and said, ‘If I didn’t have responsibilities, I would be in London all the time..’ The response I got back was just two words…’I know.’ I don’t think it’s the same for everyone but I feel like a little bit of me always yearns to be in London.

Back to reality though, I have precisely 40 minutes before I need to start getting the kids ready for school..and I wouldn’t have it any other way. ‘Blessed’ doesn’t even begin to cover how grateful I am for what I have now.

Anyway, I do hope you enjoy this delicious bowl of yumminess. 🙂
