It was a feast fit for a Maharaja!
Almond crusted saffron flavoured paneer, caramelised onion pulao with blended cashew and paneer curry.
It was so rich, too rich, that I vowed not to make it again for another year. But I’m not really great with stay-away-from-food promises, and I’m sure I’ll be making these the next time we have dinner guests. Well, maybe not the whole shabang! But definitely the Almond Crusted Paneer – now that was gold, by itself!
If you haven’t tried making paneer at home, this flavoured paneer might give you cause to make them immediately. It is custom-built with your favourite flavours! This particular version has dry red chilli flakes, chopped cilantro and saffron.
And then all that’s left to do, is dredge it in flour and almonds and fry it!
The final result is a crisp, nutty exterior, that gives way to a creamy, soft, saffron-y interior that just crumbles and melts with every bite. Now who wouldn’t love that!!
