Let us look at some of the North Indian dishes to try at Shivam Restaurant for your next visit:

1. Palak Paneer: Paneer is also known as cottage cheese. It is rich in flavor and is a versatile ingredient that is loved by both vegetarians and meat lovers alike. A common dish made from this ingredient is Palak Paneer. The dish is creamy with a plethora of sweet and savory flavors imparted by the choicest of Indian spices and cashews used in the preparation. It is generally served with bread such as Rotis or naans. Palak paneer is a must-try at Shivam Restaurant, the best Indian restaurant in Little India, Singapore.

2. Dum Aloo: Dum aloo is a simple dish with loads of flavor. It consists of steamed potatoes in a rich flavorful gravy. Dum stands for “slow-cooked with steam” and is a signature cooking method used in India. The potatoes can either be cooked post boiling or fried for a few minutes to add crunch before adding it to the gravy. Apart from the potatoes, the gravy is what makes the dish come alive in combination with rice or Indian bread like Rotis. The gravy is made with a mix of tomatoes, cashews, and onions which give it a sweet-and-sour taste.

3. Naans/Rotis: As an accompaniment to all the scrumptious dishes above, Indian bread such as Rotis and naans are a perfect choice. Rotis are round flatbreads that can be used as a vassal for your dum aloos and palak paneers. Naan is a different form of flatbread that is heavier and generally has a filling inside. You can get naans with fillings such as cheese and garlic at authentic Indian Restaurants in Singapore.

4. Gulab Jamuns: After consuming rich savory foods, it is time for some sweet tooth. Gulab Jamuns are a staple Indian sweet dish served during festivities, weddings, and on other occasions of note. Gulab jamuns are made up of milk solids, sugar, rose water and cardamom powder dipped in a sweet syrup. They are the perfect end to a meal that leaves you wanting one more bite by the end.
