We will be forever indebted to the North West of India for the introduction of tandoori food. Paneer is a fresh white cheese eaten across the North of India. It is really easy to make and really delicious, it has the mild flavour of mozzarella but a denser texture but is not heavy like yellow cheese.
Eat as they are or with a creamy mint chutney on the side. Use fresh paneer if possible (use this recipe to make your own). Shop bought also works but soak it in boiling water for 10 minutes to help soften.
