Vermicelli (or seviyan) is one of the best options for breakfast. Soft and mushy vermicelli mixed with veggies and flavoured with mild spices makes for a pleasant meal to start our day on a happy note. However, binding vermicelli to a particular recipe doesn't do justice to this otherwise-versatile food. Sweet seviyan for dessert is commonly made with it but there's a whole range of savoury options you could explore; one of them being paneer vermicelli. Protein-rich paneer (cottage cheese) is great for weight loss diet and is one of the best healthy alternatives to make your meal creamy. How? Read on.
If you grate paneer, you'll get something really close to other cheeses like Mozzarella and feta cheese. Grated paneer is as creamy and luscious as any other store-bought cheese, only healthier. So, whenever you are in a mood for some cheesy food, don't ruin your diet and make this healthy paneer vermicelli instead.
