This was the 'Valentines dinner' for us--- Paneer Chili and Tandoori Gouda(cool isn't it..I found it at Jungle Jims!) Paninis, Roasted Veggies and for dessert ..Tiramisu!!.
I couldn't wait to get my hands on to the "Tandoori Gouda".I kept wondering all week after we bought it from Jungle Jims.... how it will taste??? It was 'orangish' in color with little specks of red chilies(like in Pepper jack cheese). It was mildly spicy with a slight hint of 'coconut' taste. All in all...I LOVED it!!!
