"Pasanda" means every one's favourite. So as the name suggests this paneer delicacy is adored by everyone who tastes it.
The various pastes used to make this dish add their own distinct flavours which combine to form a flavour like none other.
Using ghee in the dish instead of oil can further enhance the flavour though making it a little high in calories. Despite the fact that this recipe calls for extra effort, it is my favourite because the rich gravy wins me praise every time I make it!
Paneer Pasanda can be enjoyed for lunch as well as dinner and also great as a part of an Indian Party menu.
