  • Serve with raitha and we had with dal tadka and plain yogurt.
PANEER-BIRYANI
Note:
  1. If not frying the paneer just dip them in hot water for 5-10 minutes and drain the water before cooking. This makes the paneer soft.
  2. Adding whole spices can be adjusted according to your own taste. Fennel seeds can be added while grinding the masala.
  3. Even cinnamon,star anise and cardamom can be added in the oil before adding onions.
