There are days when we love experimenting with new ingredients, add new textures to our dishes; but on most days, we are just thankful for versatile ingredients like paneer. Add it to gravy, parathas, desserts, paneer is bound to shine. A byproduct of milk, paneer is loaded with calcium that is good for your bones. They are also an incredible source of protein. Protein as we all know is a building block of life, it helps build muscle, and because it keeps you satiated for long — it prevents overeating. Eating in controlled portions may help facilitate your weight-loss goals.
As we mentioned earlier, paneer can be used to make a gamut of snacks, so why stick to your bhurjee and paneer tikka? With this recipe by Mumbai-based food vlogger Alpa, you can surprise your family members with a super crispy and yummy treat in a matter of minutes.
