High in the Tirumala hills lies Tirupati temple, the home of the richest Deity in the world, Lord Venkateshvara, and described by Srila Prabhupada, in Krishna book, as the "the most important place of pilgrimage in southern India". Catering to the needs of tens of thousands of pilgrims who visit every day, the temple executives have developed a management system which Srila Prabhupada said was super excellent and which he urged ISKCON leaders to study.

The Hare Krishna movement has a unique relationship with this temple. Out of respect for Srila Prabhupada's concern that the local preaching be increased, the temple executives gave the devotees land, funds to build a temple, and an open-air restaurant to manage, so that the pilgrims can have the opportunity to associate with devotees and purchase their books. This is the recipe for paneer sak served at the ISKCON canteen situated at the halfway point on the eight kilometer footpath to the temple.

You can find this recipe and more in The Hare Krishna Book of Vegetarian Cooking.
