A semi-dry preparation of marinated paneer with common spices and spice powders, tomato pulp, fresh cream, and all the works, the Paneer Tava Masala features a mind-boggling array of flavours, thanks to the addition of roasted caraway seeds, kasuri methi and chaat masala too.

The aroma and flavour are undoubtedly enhanced by cooking it on the tava – try it to believe us!

Serve with Ajwaini Roti , Parathas or Tandoori Naan .

How does cooking on a non stick tava alter the taste compared to cooking in any other vessel say like a kadai? I think cooking on a heavy metal tava instead may enhance as the masala slightly stick to the tava and then one has to keep scraping it.
