Sana Thongba from Indian State Manipur

Sana Thongba is a traditional mild Manipuri dish prepared with paneer and milk. Having milk based gravy and minimal spices, Sana thongba is a perfect dish with rice, roti or paratha.


In Manipuri language, Meeteilon "Sana" means a milk-based product (paneer) and "Thongba" or "Thongpa" means curry, hence paneer curry. It is very similar to Indian matar paneer (vegan matar paneer) but with fewer ingredients. Sana Thongpa is a very famous Manipuri vegetarian dish served often during festivals like Ushop. The reason this recipe stands out from other paneer recipes is its milk based gravy. So definitely not suitable for those who are lactose intolerant.
