      Paneer or Cottage Cheese is also known as Indian Cheese. It is an important part of Indian cuisines. It is generally made by curding heated milk with lemon juice or vinegar.

      Paneer consist of 4 percent fat and 11 percent protein. So it is a high source of protein. There are many health benefits of paneer. Paneer is very good in taste and there are many varieties of dishes of paneer such as sahi paneer, paneer butter masala, paneer tikka masala , palak paneer, matar paneer etc. etc.
