What is paneer?
Paneer is a mild Indian cheese. It keeps its shape when cooking and holds spices really well, so is great for veggie recipes. It’s widely sold in blocks, but it’s also really easy to make your own. All you need is milk, lemon juice and a bit of time. Check out our step-by-step guide to the perfect homemade paneer here.
Where to buy paneer
A surprisingly low-calorie dinner, with cubes of golden paneer on top of gently spiced dahl. Best eaten with lots of chapatis.
Cook this veg-heavy curry for a healthy vegetarian meal. The peas add extra protein while ginger and plum tomatoes make a light, fragrant sauce.
Paneer is perfect for grilling as it gets super crisp on the outside but retains its soft centre. Serve on skewers with green peppers alongside a refreshing relish for an easy vegetarian BBQ treat.
