C46 Chicken Haryana

Mozzarella cheese is not normally an ingredient to be found in an Indian meal but dishes containing it can sometimes be found. There is no Indian word for Mozzarella cheese because, until recently, paneer was the only commonly used cheese in Indian cuisine. However, due to the abundance of Water Buffalo in many Indian states, it became apparent that there was a business opportunity to produce Mozzarella cheese there, the main constituent of which is Buffalo milk. Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and several other states are now producing Mozzarella, hence why I chose to call it Chicken Haryana, although it is often called 'Shampan' or 'Sham Paan' on restaurant menus. This is a recipe update but the original can still be found here.
