Paneer Butter Masala

Paneer Butter Masala

My hubby and my kid bought a bouquet which was very beautiful, but the little flower buds dragged  
my attention. Do you ever thought how small things will give pleasure to us. When I see flower buds I feel they are like children with hopeful eyes, innocent smile, beautiful face.... When we see children giggling and clapping there hands even for small things, listening to their cute little words, Looking into their innocent face, our heart will fill with immense pleasure and happiness.

Hey, not only flower buds, but taste buds also give us pleasure by allowing us to experience different tastes. We have to thank our taste buds for allowing us to appreciate the sweetness of our favorite dessert, Juiciness of a fruit, freshness of a vegetable. We enjoy each and every bite of our food because of taste buds....
