Saucy Paneer is a Chinese dish usually served as an appetizer. I am fond of Chinese cuisine and it is usually my go to food for a take away. Today, Chinese cuisine is enjoyed all around the world, for it is nutritious, balanced and delicious.
Paneer is a fresh, unsalted white cheese that can be easily made at home. All you’ve to do is curdle milk with little lemon juice or vinegar, separate the milk solids and strain off the whey or liquid. It is similar to cottage cheese, however cottage cheese is wet and has loose curds which cannot be used the way paneer is used in Indian dishes.
Paneer is extremely versatile and is used in Indian, Iranian and Afghani cooking. It is vegetarian and is a smart alternative to meat. It is used to make kebabs, stuffing to flat breads and sandwiches and stirred into soups and curries.
Saucy Paneer is a quick dish that can be made by stir frying the paneer cubes in vegetables and different sauces. It can be served as an appetizer or side dish and it goes well with Fried Rice and Noodles. Prepare this for a get-together at home and I’m sure it would be an instant hit.
You can use tofu instead of paneer for a vegan version.
