5 Easy Paneer Recipes | Indian Paneer Curry

If you are a Paneer lover or someone wanting to try it, this post is for you!

Paneer or Indian cottage cheese is a popular ingredient in north Indian cuisine, used in making appetizers, curries, and parathas. Making fresh paneer at home is pretty easy, but if you don’t want to spend time on it, find yourself a good-quality one at your Indian grocery store.

We eat paneer regularly – almost every week. That is why I prefer buying it. It’s usually 400gm, which is too much for the two of us. Therefore, I usually divide it into two equals and use it on two days. And cooking paneer is easier than it sounds – it literally takes about 3-4 to cook. Alternatively, you can munch (on a small amount) of it without cooking or pan-sear it and use it in salads.

Below are five easy paneer curry recipes that you make for yourself and your family! They are delicious and go well with rotis, chapatis, naan, or flavored rice such as ghee rice, jeera rice, Kashmiri pulao, etc. I hope you like these recipes. Enjoy!
