We had received a number of requests to post recipes of Main Dishes which can be made for special occasions especially when you have guests at home. So Tingle Your Taste Buds presents recipes of two sumptuous main dishes for you all this week!

A paneer (Cottage cheese) item is usually a must have in the menu during any occasion or get-together. Infact, it’s a common joke among Indians that paneer is the “chicken” of the vegetarians implying it is an equally tasty and luxurious food item. One can make a multitude of dishes using paneer not just for main course but for snacks or appetizers as well. Paneer is high in protein and calcium content, and many people who have lactose intolerance or cannot digest milk are advised to have paneer instead regularly...

It’s been so hot this summer that we all keep looking for recipes to beat the heat – there is never an end to cooling summer beverages! This week Tingle Your Taste Buds presents two diverse and energizing beverage recipes which are bound to leave one feeling exhilarated and raring to go.

Biryani is a world renowned dish and it’s history is as interesting and rich as the dish itself. It is not a simple to make dish due to its unique process of layering, and requires practice to get it perfect. A meal consisting of scrumptious biryani can be extremely satisfying due to its unique aroma, flavours and spices. Across the world, biryani is prepared in a number of styles now and different regions have their own type of Biryani. Originally, Biryani was prepared by cooking long-grained rice with meat, chicken, fish or eggs but eventually the vegetarian version also came through. Well, that happens with every dish doesn’t it? :)

After being treated to authentic Biryani in Hyderabad, it was quite amusing that wherever I went and ordered for Biryani in restaurants, I was served pulao in...
