The Paneer Kaliya is a spikily flavoured dish with a succulent texture, which makes it really irresistible! Strong scents of powdered fennel and dry ginger make this dish very different from other paneer based subzis.

Moreover, the texture also gets a bit different because the paneer is sautéed separately, before adding it to the spice mixture.

Half a cup of milk is essential to balance the texture of the gravy and also to bring the spiciness down to a level that will please your taste buds.

Serve this subzi with Kashmiri Roti and Kashmiri Fresh Fruit Rice .
