The potato has a medium starch texture, is slightly creamy and dense, and has a delicate skin. White potatoes have a mildly sweet flavour and are low in sugar.
Poppy Seeds / Khus Khus / Kasa Kasa :
Poppy seeds, even when plain, have a mild flavour, which is why they're so popular as a garnish.
Coriander Powder : Coriander has a flowery flavour similar to cardamom. It has a citrus and curry flavour that is light and sweet. The roasted, nutty scents of the seeds come to the fore when ground, albeit at the sacrifice of all that beautiful citrus.
You can serve aloo paneer with chapatis or paratha or pudina paratha and even cumin rice or peas pulao.
