Palak Paneer is a mouth-watering spinach-based curry which is infused with soft cottage cheese cubes. The spinach is blanched, and this gives the whole dish a lovely green colour, so that you can enjoy it visually too. Some of the most striking flavours involved in making this curry are turmeric, cumin seeds, and kasuri methi leaves which are added towards the end just before the cream. This smooth and healthy curry is bursting with flavour, and is an absolute must-try for veggies and meat-eaters alike.
Butter chicken has become one of the most popular dishes all over the world, possibly because its mild but bold flavours are well-suited to nearly any palate. This medium curry is one of the creamiest in the world, and that is down to the generous amount of butter and cream used in the cooking process. Some of the more striking flavours in the dish come from the cumin, garam masala, grated ginger, and fresh coriander. It is ideal for wrapping in a naan and devouring with your hands.
This is similar to the classic biryani, in that it features a perfect blend of aromatics, herbs, and spices which combine to pack an awesome punch. It is a curry made with mutton, and requires a slow cooking process to break the meat down and make it nice and tender. Anyone who eats this dish will notice the strong taste of nutmeg and mace blade which work amazingly alongside the turmeric and cumin. Made in a pressure cooker, this curry develops over time until it just overwhelms you with flavour. It simply is a must-try dish.
4.Methi Mutter Malai
Methi Mutter Malai is another fantastic option for vegetarians. It is renowned for being creamy, smooth, and healthy thanks to the inclusion of methi (also known as fenugreek) and peas. It is made by boiling the peas down and making a paste, and then adding powerful ingredients such as green chillies, cumin seeds, and ginger. This is another dish, like the Palak Paneer, which can easily be enjoyed by meat-eaters as well as vegetarians.
The common theme with all of these extraordinary dishes is the use of strong and flavourful herbs and spices like cumin, turmeric, ginger, and green chillies.
So if you're hankering for some mouth-watering delights that are absolutely bursting with flavour, order one of these meals from Deliveroo today.
