If you were around during the 90s, you probably watched the show Khana Khazana at some point. And you almost definitely recognise this man, Sanjeev Kapoor, the chef and host.
The man's a pretty great cook.
So yesterday, he decided to post the recipe for Malabar Paneer.
Malabar Paneer - A wonderful Malabar dish that has the flavors spicies and offers several gastronomic opportunities. The food is generally fresh, aromatic and flavored.

That's almost as bad as the time people tried to convince us Veg Biryani was a thing (Spoilers: It's not).
Or even Veg Momos.
The point is, Twitter's Malayalis didn't take too kindly to this heresy.
