well, to be honest, i am not a huge fan of this recipe and i personally do not prefer due to the number of red chillies used in this recipe. basically i cannot consume so much heat and i usually prefer medium spice level in my meal. as a matter of fact, due to the use of ghee, you may not feel the spice level when you consume it. yet it does not negate the fact that it contains the generous amount of red chillies. hence you may have to be very careful when serving to your kids. having said that, the combination of spice with ghee makes it an amazing side dish snack. you can prepare it and serve it in a roll/wrap or you can also serve it as a side dish to roti, chapthi or even for indo chinese rice recipes.

anyway, before concluding i would like to highlight some tips, suggestions, variations for a perfect paneer ghee roast recipe. firstly, i always recommended using homemade paneer and also homemade ghee for this recipe. if you do not have access to both, try to find something fresh and flavoured with your local grocery shop. secondly, the dish has to be served immediately once it is tossed and prepared. due to the nature of the dish, ghee should be in a liquid state and should not solidify. lastly, you can follow the same procedure and step with other ingredients. you can choose mushroom, potatoes and even meat like chicken and mutton.
