Paneer is a fresh, non-melting cheese that’s popular in Indian cuisine.

It’s made from milk that has been curdled with lemon juice or vinegar, and then pressed into a block.

Paneer has a mild, slightly sweet flavour and a soft, crumbly texture.

It is often used in curries, tikka masalas, and other Indian dishes.

Where does paneer come from?

The exact origins of paneer are unknown, but it is believed to have originated in India.

There are several theories about how paneer was first made, but the most likely explanation is that it was accidentally created by curdling milk with lemon juice or vinegar.

Paneer quickly became popular in India, and it is now enjoyed all over the world.

Where to buy paneer

Paneer is available in most grocery stores, either in the dairy section or in the international aisle.

It is also available at many Indian grocery stores. Paneer can be found in blocks or cubes.

if you can’t find paneer where you live, you can try making your own (it’s easier than you think!).
