  30. My husband is Japanese so we eat a lot of tofu. This is a very nice variation, I'll try it. We lived in New Delhi from 1990 to 1995 and at that time paneer was used as a kind of tofu. We all love Indian food at home but it's not so good as the one we used to eat in Delhi. I found you at my friend hameererasoi and I'm following you from Trapani, Sicily. Give my regards to New Delhi, my daughter and I miss it so much. We lived in Malcha Marg then in Vasant Vihar.
