I happen to love paneer (non melting, unaged, farmer’s cheese).
Growing up, I don’t remember mom cooking much paneer (cheese). It was something that we ate at restaurants.
As a South Indian our diet mostly consisted of rice, lentils, vegetables, and chicken. Paneer/cheese was considered ‘North Indian food’. So when we wanted to eat, we would go out to a restaurant for a treat, and what a nice treat it was.
As my cooking repertoire expanded, I started experimenting everything at home. I sometimes make my own paneer(quite simple) especially when it is for curries. I make paneer almost every week now; my boys can’t get enough of it. When I have to make these for a crowd , I buy it, as it is firmer than the home made ones and much easier.
These paneer skewers are easy to make. They make great appetizers for parties with your favorite dip, use sriracha to climb the roof or the yogurt mint sauce to calm your senses. Just add them to a smooth tomato sauce, and you have a great gravy. They served as a light lunch for my girlfriends and me.
Hope you get to make it sometime. Have a great weekend my friends!
