Soft paneer in a velvety smooth cream based masala, ever famous paneer butter masala
05/17/2018 10:24:49 AM vindhyadesai
Paneer butter masala or PBM is one of the most loved paneer dishes. There was a time when we used to always order paneer butter masala by default. What’s not to like, soft golden paneer cubes in a buttery creamy tomato based gravy. Loads of butter and some of cream to finish off the gravy, now how can that taste bad!
Paneer butter masala can be served with roti, phulka, naan or kulcha. I served it with a simple dal tadka, peas pulao, pudina raitha and some phulka. It’s the perfect combination. Cashews make the gravy rich and extra creamy. Do not feel daunted while making paneer butter masala. Get all the ingredients ready and make the gravy easily. ... “Paneer Butter Masala | Paneer Recipes | Gravy Recipes”

Always difficult to choose and prepare. We have to carefully assemble them and also make them look pretty. But how about a foolproof recipe for making paneer tikka.
You can make these in advance and leave them in the marinade. And get some help in skewering them and you are all set. Tasty and delicious paneer tikka can then be roasted off in the oven in bulk.

Ensure you have fresh paneer and palak to make restaurant style palak paneer. It has some nice spices along with julienne’d ginger and some aromatic kasuri methi to finish on top. I also have a rustic home style palak paneer recipe where I do not grind the palak and leave the masala ingedients with a texture. Of course, restaurant style palak paneer has some fresh cream to finish which brings out the best flavours and creaminess. ... “Restaurant Style Palak Paneer | Palak Paneer | Paneer Recipes”

Starters and appetizers always set the tone of a meal. Delicious starters served in the right portions define the quality of the rest of the courses. Kebabs/Kababs are one of the most preferred kind of starters. Kababs are originally from Middle East. These need not be non-vegetarian as is the common notion. Perfectly delicious vegetarian kebabs/kababs can be made and they make great starters to a meal. Boiled potatoes generally form the base of vegetarian kebabs/kababs. Hara bhara kabab is one of the most common type of starters, loaded with goodness of green spinach and peas mixed into a base of boiled and mashed potatoes. Grated paneer adds great texture and structure to these kababs, light masalas like amchur powder add the perfect taste to wake up those taste buds.

Soft moist milk sweet, a sure crowd pleaser

Sweets made with milk which are soft, moist and rich are liked by most. The kind of colourful and tasty sweets lined up in a sweet shop always attracts everyone. But they can be quite expensive to buy and are mostly reserved for special occasions. But what if these kinds of sweets can be made at home with simple ingredients. One such sweet is ‘kalakand’, it is one of my favourite sweets and I absolutely love making it. They turn out to be so moist and are very fresh when made at home. They have to be made ahead of time because it needs some time to set and tastes better that way. ... “Kalakand”
