THE  Glasgow Indian restaurant that was the first in the U.K. to go totally nut free has just come up with a brand new vegan paneer cheese.
The Dhabba restaurant in the city’s Candleriggs has always led the way in trendsetting North Indian cuisine and was keen to provide its vegan customers with a taste of their famous homemade paneer cheese.
The eaterie, which already had an extensive vegan choice, as well as its chicken, lamb, fish and vegetarian dishes, has just relaunched it’s vegan menu to give even more choice to its dairy and egg free  customers.
It’s new menu features paneer handmade from soy milk (not tofu) to give a traditional taste with all the benefits.
There are currently three vegan paneer main dishes on offer - Paneer Shimla -  with peppers and onions, Palak Paneer
- a robust preparation of paneer and spinach leaves, and  Paneer Makhani Masala - a vegan cottage cheese in a tomato- based rich, creamy sauce.
All the paneer dishes are £12.95 and join other vegan delights like Subzi Tak-a-Tak with Indian squash, bitter gourd, cauliflower, aubergines and okra, Bharwan Aloo- Roasted potato stuffed with chopped vegetables and Khumb Gajar Mutter- A medley of mushrooms, carrots and green peas in a medium sauce of browned onions, tomato and ginger.
Dhabba owner Navdeep Basi said: “At Dhabba we have always taken pride in offering quality dishes whilst pushing the boundaries of Indian cuisine. The ancient art of Paneer making is something our chefs are very skilled at and we thought it would be good to create something special for our vegan customers.
We have a totally bespoke vegan menu on offer for them which now joins our other chicken, lamb, fish and vegetarian menus. We have a large range of gluten free dishes and are totally nut free. It’s been interesting and flattering to see other restaurants around the globe following our lead. We hope to set the trend with our soy milk based vegan paneer once again.”
