      These were great! I made 1/2 with paneer, 1/2 with chicken. I used a bit more cumin and garam masala than called for- maybe 1/8 teaspoon of each. These had a very nice flavor, and a little residual heat that stayed with you after each bite. The chicken and paneer versions tasted distinctly different, but both were wonderful. Three of us scarfed down the entire recipe for lunch, we liked them that much. I'd like to try to freeze these, they'd be great in brown bag lunches. Made for ZWT8.
