paneer recipe



Paneer is a popular Indian dish made from curd cheese. This cheese is fresh and unaged, making it a fantastic cheese for cooking because it won’t melt the way that most cheeses do. Paneer can be made in the comfort of your home with just milk, lemon juice, and a bit of time on your hands. It has a mild, milky flavor with a dense crumbly texture that goes beautifully well in Indian curries or even crumbled over a salad or pasta.
