My cold seems to be harmless but sticky. Like in Hollywood movies, I decided to cure it with soup. Usually in movies they give a sick child chicken soup, but in my case I think paneer will do. As my kitchen closets and fridge is full of ingredients (I always get excited in stores and buy too much), I didn’t see any reason to leave my castle to get anything. I gathered my ingredients and then decided what kind of soup it’s going to be. It ended being spicy paneer-gobi-mushroom-tomato soup :). Maybe little shorter name would be in place here…
