1 tsp of coriander seeds crushed
1 tsp of mustard seeds

1 small white onion finely chopped
1 tsp of garamasala
1 tbsp of lemon juice
2 tbsp of milk

  2. Heat oil in a non stick pan and fry the paneer til golden , remove from the pan
  3. Add cumin , mustard & coriander seeds roughly crushed and fry until fragrant add the onion and garlic

    Homemade paneer must be pretty low fat as cheeses go. I must follow your directions and have a go at making it.

    The sag paneer looks very tempting (I haven’t been out for a curry in ages!)

    i LOVE saag paneer, and i’ve had it also made with tofu to replace the paneer, and weirdly, paneer and tofu have the same texture.

  5. I’m definitely going to try this tonight, but with store-bought paneer because I’m not THAT ambitious. Thanks.
