Paneer recipes

Paneer is a fresh cheese used in a wide variety of Indian recipes. It’s milky, mild and usually made by heating and then curdling cow’s milk using an acid like lemon juice. As an alternative to meat, it can be a budget option and a good way to get protein in your diet. It can also be a good substitute for firm tofu (made from soy milk) in some recipes. Make the most of this vegetarian cheese in these wide-ranging ideas.
