Late fall brings excitement over the return of soups, spicy meals, desserts, pies, and the opportunity to fill the kitchen with the heat and heady smells of herbs and spice. Winter follows with spectacular holiday celebrations, with friends talking around grand feasts.
This is one dish which is present always at winter parties and meat eaters adore it equally.
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.
