Saffron, Almond and Paneer Festival Pulao
This is such a lovely festive rice dish – the saffron and cardamom give it a wonderful, luxe flavour, and the butter-fried almonds and paneer kofta work beautifully with it. While making the homemade paneer kofta takes a little time, the rice itself is an easy 20-minute one-pan dish which you could easily make without the kofta for a simpler weekend meal. This looks really lovely brought to the table in a wide, flat bowl.
