Finger-licking fare, this truly is! Succulent cubes of cottage cheese are cooked in a luxurious paste of almonds and onions, along with a horde of spice powders that add a lot of zing to this intensely rich dish.


Although the almond paste seems similar to the cashew-onion paste that is used in a lot of Mughlai dishes, the use of almonds gives it a totally different taste and texture, which sets the Badami Paneer a class apart.


A dash of cream further accentuates the richness of this subzi, making it a perfectly royal treat, which can be cooked easily in the Microwave oven, without any fuss.


Serve with your favourite Rotis / Puris / Parathas .
