The Quintessential Blended Spice

Paneer is a versatile ingredient loved by most Indians and in the west, where it is known as cottage cheese. As any cheese, it is a good source of protein, but low in calories compared to its other cheese counterparts.

The cheese can be homemade with simple ingredients and technique. It is neutral in taste and has the tendency to absorb the flavour and scent of the spices mixed with it, therefore, making it a good candidate for grilling and to be used as the main ingredient in gravies. Some of the famous Indian recipes of paneer are paneer makhani (paneer cooked in butter and spiced onion gravy), palak paneer (paneer and spinach), kadai paneer (paneer with local vegetables in spicy gravy) and shahi paneer (paneer cooked spiced tomato gravy with cream).

One of the distinctive features of any Indian dish is the harmony of spices it presents. With paneer dishes dominating vegetarian meals in Indian households, it is great to have a pre-blended masala in the arsenal to make these dishes even more delicious. This special mix of spices enhances the nutritional value of the dishes making it healthy too.
