So, what is paneer cheese?

Paneer cheese is a type of fresh cheese that is commonly used in Indian cuisine. It is made by curdling milk with a food acid such as lemon juice or vinegar, which causes the milk proteins to coagulate and form curds. These curds are then pressed and shaped into a solid block, which can be sliced or diced for cooking. Paneer has a mild, creamy flavor and a firm, crumbly texture, making it a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of dishes. It is often used in curries, stir-fries, and grilled dishes, and is a popular vegetarian protein source due to its high protein content.
