Being a cooker is sure a tough job 🙂 I go through this with my son too -- he has only few job descriptions in his mind (like policeman, fireman etc) and cannot understand any other jobs 🙂
That paneer makhmali looks so amazing. Perfect dish to make on the grill. Will try some time.
I've heard my kids say, "I'm the best cooker in the whole wide world", so I can relate the cooker comment your kids gave you. The tikka looks perfect for kids like me too Valli!
