Eastern Shahi Paneer Masala – For a Friend’s surprise visit



One Friday we had a pleasant surprise visit by a close friend. Wow… it was amazing to know that Friday evening is going to be a fun. But then the worry was about the dinner. What should we do? Should we cook? Or should we order food from restaurant? We ruled out ordering food from restaurant as we wanted to treat him with home cooked food. After a lot of discussion we decided to try “Shahi Paneer Masala” from “Easy 3 step cooking” series by Eastern Condiments. Later we were convinced that we took the best decision.

Sharing our experience.

“Shahi Paneer Masala” is among the quick cooking “Easy 3 step cooking” series by Eastern Condiments.

The final product :



Shahi Paneer was very delicious in taste. It was very mildly spiced and had the rich gravy with a smooth texture. We could feel the distinct taste of cashew in the gravy which was one of the major expectations that we had. The quantities of all the ingredients that is mentioned with the recipe are optimal and we did not even need to add a pinch of salt. However someone can still customize it to their taste by adding any other needed ingredients. We also felt that we could cook Shahi Paneer Mutter with the same masala, which we will surely try next time.

This is a very handy instant masala mix which anyone may like to have handy in the kitchen. For us it proved to be a savior and helped us make the surprise visit a memorable one. It has definitely made a place in our kitchen.
