Paneer is a paneer is a paneer! Ya ya…I know….you love paneer…and you..reading with your hand in your hair…also love paneer. What…did you say? You don’t like it?….😱😱😱….you are doomed…
Enough drama created on my part so far 😉. I give up. Honestly, India has a huge Paneer Lovers population. But then there are few, who are neutral to it and I am one among them. I cook with paneer often since my family loves it and to entice myself enough to eat it, I cook paneer in different kind of curries. This time I cooked in Korma curry and it came out fabulous. Rich! Decandent! And not Shahi Paneer! Thank God! Phew. My apologies to the Shahi paneer lovers but it is what it is 😉.
Errr, for those of you who do not know what paneer is, it is Indian cottage cheese equivalent to Italian Ricotta or Mexican Queso in preparation.
This is how it is prepared!

Oooooooooh Sonal!! My tummy is grumbling! Those luscious paneer pieces & that gorgeous gravy!! Love the photo styling!
Looks (and sounds) so delicious! I love the rich vibrant color Sonal. Gorgeous meatless dish.
It looks really tempting 🙂 Beautiful pictures Sonal!
Yum! Going to try with extra firm tofu.
This is yummilicous Sonal <3 I am not a huge fan of Paneer myself but this sure does sound like something i want to devour ! Thanks for sharing 🙂
mmmm… Do you think that I could substitute queso fresco for paneer? (easier to get my hands on) My husband is a HUGE fan!!
I have never used Queso in a curry. It’s much salty than Paneer.
I would say, try using it but maintain the salt in the curry base. Also will advise to buy a firm Queso, or use extra firm tofu, and may be grill the Queso or tofu lightly before adding so that it doesn’t crumble.
I need to find Paneer!! i wasn’t thinking about the saltiness… that is a little worrisome…
Thanks for your suggestions!
Paneer making is so easy for your calibre. Try it at home. I have a recipe on the blog. All you need is milk, vinegar or lemon juice. That’s it.
You are inspiring!
