Awesome recipe Pavi! I was wondering if you made muffins, cut them and then layered the pesto on there - but you baked with them! how great. I wish you had more chunky pieces of paneer in the center - would have loved that too. But they look wonderful. If you tea time is this fancy - how will you main course be! Aha!

Such pretty little bites, with great blend of flavours. You have such a great collection of recipes. May I ask the inspiration behind paneer and pesto muffin?
