The Taste of Paneer

This post features curries and gravies that include paneer or cottage cheese as the main ingredient. Paneer is hugely a favorite among the non meat eaters and is more popular in North and Eastern states of Indian subcontinent. Paneer never fails to arouse the taste buds of food lovers in various ways it is served. It can be prepared and served in variety of ways – paneer based starters (tikkas, cutlets), paneer based curries and gravies (makhni paneer, shahi paneer), paneer accompanied with veggies ( palak paneer, matar paneer) and much more. Paneer is also used as the main ingredient while preparing a number of Indian sweets (rasmalai, rasgulla, sandesh ) especially in Eastern India. Here it is more popularly known as ‘chenna’.

 I have prepared curries or gravies that are based on paneer. These are usually eaten with chapati, roti or naan and they also taste good steamed rice, jeera or pulav. I hope you all love and enjoy this post.
