Mughlai food is famous for its abundant use of dry fruits in every course of the meal. Dry fruits such as cashewnuts and almonds are used not only whole or broken into pieces but also by grinding them into fine pastes. Almond paste adds a rich creaminess to any dish. Here almonds have been ground along with paneer to form a smooth mixture that is combined with an array of masalas and some bread to give delicious melt in your mouth kebabs.
