Kitchens Of India Daily Treat Mutter Paneer

Why we recommend Kitchens of India, Daily Treat, Ready Mutter Paneer too:

Kitchens of India, Mutter Paneer is exactly what the name suggests. It’s how matar-paneer is usually made in our kitchens with lots of tomatoes and onions.

In fact, Kitchens of India, Daily Treat, Ready Mutter Paneer has amongst the highest percentage of tomatoes used to create a homestyle tomato-onion gravy.

The gravy is tasty, peas are well cooked, and the paneer was soft. We felt there could have been more paneer in the gravy, and perhaps bigger, unbroken pieces would be preferable.

Other than that, the dish tastes good, and Kitchens of India offers an appetizing pack of matar-paneer on a day when you want a more homestyle dish.

How We Picked Our Brands

Our main philosophy behind our brand picking is to go for names that are commonly available and familiar to everyone. Each of the brands on our list has a whole range of traditional Indian cuisines in its catalog of products. The other most important aspect for our brand selection was to pick specific brands that are known to provide great quality ready-to-eat recipes, and there is no doubt that Haldiram’s and MTR are a few names that came up. To further add, we refrained from picking up any gourmet brands, for they might not fall under the same price range, which might do injustice to the competitors.

Who Is This For?

Muttar paneer is a traditional Indian delicacy that contains tender chunks of cottage cheese (everybody’s favorite) and green peas, both cooked in a gravy with a specific set of spices. However, there is anything else that is required to prepare it, it would be time. And for people who have a hectic schedule ahead of time, a ready-to-eat meal is the preferred option for stopping them from craving something as homely as matar paneer

How We Tested: Our Parameters

We followed the simple instructions given at the back of the packaging for the preparation of each of these items. Before tasting, we decided a few parameters upon which we judged each of these brands. Here are those parameters:

  1. Texture Of Paneer: Whether it’s creamy, chewy or chunky, the texture of paneer must compliment the overall flavor of the dish.
  2. Quantity Of Paneer: Paneer is one of the main ingredients of this dish, so you expect the portion to have an adequate quantity of paneer that would an impact on the eating experience.
  3. Quantity Of Peas: Peas are responsible for providing all the flavor to the dish, and its quantity must be as per requirement. It’s terrible when you have lots of gravy and very few peas floating around!
  4. List of ingredients: We always look for a healthier, better list of ingredients. If taste and flavors and other parameters were equal, we would always rank the product with a ‘better list of ingredients’ higher.
  5. Overall Taste: The resultant flavor of all the factors is the ultimate equalizer for our test.

We all love paneer, but did you know how much protein is there in paneer?
