Blogging Marathon# 48: Week 3/ Day 3
Theme: Biryani of different Styles
Dish: Makhani Paneer Biryani
Here’s a delicious biryani made with paneer for all paneer and biryani fans. Paneer is cooked with tomatoes, spices and some cream to make a lip smacking curry that is layered with basmati rice and then baked off (or cooked on dum) for an awesome tasting biryani that is sure to wow anyone.
I had more than a gallon of 1% milk that needed to be used up real fast, so I made paneer flavored with cumin seeds, ground coriander, chili flakes and kasuri methi. Now that I had that in the fridge, I was looking for recipes to use it and found the recipe for Makhani Paneer biryani here. It sounded like the perfect dish to make with my homemade flavored paneer.
The biryani turned out spicy and very yummy. Since there are not many vegetables in the biryani itself, I served it with Sandhya’s spinach raita and it was just a perfect accompaniment.
