Fresh, crisp golden paneer cubes, subtly spiced onion and spinach sauce, rich with cream and garam masala.
Paneer, like haloumi, is a cheese I really relish cooking. I love the way it crisps golden brown, the edges oozing a little but still retaining it's firm and meaty structure. What's really exciting about it is the fact you can create it yourself at home and it still turns out perfect. I was sure my home made version would be far inferior, crumbling apart and tasting bland, but I was wrong. That's it below in all it's toasted and intact glory. Of course actually making it requires a very large amount of milk which is wasted unless you can find some culinary ingenuity quickly. Or, if you keep a flock of geese or ducks out back, you can let them partake. Having neither most of the time, I mainly resort to buying it.
