Paneer

From a 7-year-old kid to 70-year-old grey haired person, there is hardly anyone who does not love the yummy and milky chunks of paneer! The inevitable rich qualities of milk mixed with Vitamin C obtained from lemon juice make it an extremely healthy variant of cheese.

Being the most basic and commonly used cheese in Indian cuisine, it is easily available in the market and malls. However, people who require it on a daily basis prefer to make it at home as it gets economically feasible for them.

There are lots of breakfast paneer recipes such as Paneer Sandwich recipes, Paneer Paratha recipes, Paneer Chapati, Paneer Roll, etc. You can try out Paneer Vegetable recipes for lavish lunch and dinner or use Paneer roll, Paneer Tikka, Paneer nugget, etc. as appetizers.

Paneer dessert recipes are also lip-smacking and worth a try. Some of these recipes are so versatile that you can have them as both appetizer and side dish. Spices used in the Indian cuisine endow these recipes with extra goodness.

The use of paneer dates back to the Vedic Age. On one hand, some age-old traditional Paneer dishes like Palak Paneer, Matar Paneer, Paneer Butter Masala, Shahi Paneer, Paneer Makhani are still loved by many whereas few snacks like Paneer tikka and Paneer nuggets are the new inclusions which are served with chopped onion rings and tomato sauce. If you master a few of the recipes you will certainly become a famous cook amongst your relatives and friends.

Eaten with rice, roti, paratha, naan, this cheese variant provides a number of health benefits as well. Protein and calcium present in it help in keeping the bone and muscle in good condition.
