Paneer Spice Crunch Burger

This one’s tricky! Paneer and burger buns might not necessarily go well together. But not at Bubsterrs in Kalyani Nagar. Made with crunchy cottage cheese steak, marinated in spicy schezwan sauce and topped with tomato mayo and fresh onions, the Paneer Spice Crunch burger out here is to die for.

Paneer Butter Masala

Who doesn’t love a spicy-sweet paneer butter masala? While many restaurants and up adding too much of tomato puree and sweetners to the dish, George at East Street makes the perfect North Indian style paneer butter masala. The dish has no sugar whatsoever, the sweetness comes from the natural ingredients, spices and their in-house sauces and fresh cream.
