The paneer they say is the vegetarian man’s chicken and quite rightly so. It won’t be an overstatement to call paneer recipes the king of indian vegetarian recipes. It is laden with protein and is an excellent ingredient that adapts itself to flavours, savoury and sweet alike. The Malai kofta too is nothing but paneer kofta. They have a soft, succulent, melt in mouth in texture, hence the name perhaps. To learn how to make malai kofta read the detailed recipe given below….
Paneer Tikka Recipe:
Grilled Cottage Cheese and veggies, our favourite Indian ‘tandoori’ party starter.
The party season is here, I mean the bonfires, some music, friends, wines, dances and smoking tikkas on the garden grill. That’s precisely been our plan for every New Year eve ever since we got married and frankly I can’t imagine a better one for that matter. So this year too we are all set for the bonefire party and I thought why not share my ‘ Anu’s famous’ Paneer tikka recipe with you lovely readers much in advance, so that you could make the arrangements and prepare it for your new year dinner too.
Shahi Paneer Recipe:
Delicious creamy and mildly sweet gravy with soft cottage cheese, for all special occasions.
The name ‘Shahi’ (that’s translates to ‘royal’ in English) itself suggest that this recipe has to be an exotic one, and that is exactly what it is. A delicate cashew nut and cream gravy with soft and fresh cottage cheese, with a hint of Indian spices and a mild sweetness makes it a perfect recipe for celebrations. The Shahi Paneer recipe I am sharing had been transferred to my mom by my grandma and has been adapted a little to suit our taste buds over the years.
Now by adaptation I do not mean we have altered the sheer identity of the shahi paneer recipe, all the traditional flavours have been kept strongly intact except the sweetness that has been cut down by infusing a little extra chilli (a red whole chilli that you’ll see) to the otherwise really sweet gravy. A very sweet gravy doesn’t really work for us but in case you like it, just skip the whole red chilli part and you’ll get the real Shahi recipe to follow.

Malai Kofta Recipe:
Indian Mughlai cottage cheese dumplings cooked in rich cashew nut curry
Come ‘on now don’t give me that look, when its about special occasions here in our country we do love to go the royal way and what could be better than Mughali for the upcoming Rakhi celebration on the 2nd. Mughlai cooking as we know is all about rich, spicy and delicate cooking which produces food that simply melts in our mouth. Hence, a test batch of these divine Malai Kofta’s for my Saturday Dinner would allow me to share the recipe with you much before the actual festival, so there’s enough time to arrange the ingredients and plan your special Festival feast.
Et voila! Am I not getting better each day with my excuses for indulgence? Well whatever, if too wish to join me in the crime of indulgence with food, try the recipe, here it goes.
