Our paneer salad recipe is made from homemade paneer and homegrown veggies and herbs.  It is ideal to used freshly prepared paneer because of its freshness and soft texture. However, you can also use store-bought paneer; just make sure to have completely defrosted it before use. Homemade paneer can be made through a simple preparation of curdling milk by adding 1 tbsp of vinegar or freshly squeezed lime juice to hot boiled milk.  Pour the curdled mix through a muslin cloth over a colander to strain the excess water. Squeeze it well to remove the excess water and press down in order to later cut it into cubes.

If you can use source the best quality milk like the one we used from Fairtrade farmers would yield soft paneer. Our delectable paneer recipe is an easy accompaniment with roti, even as a meal, or as a snack for health-conscious people. Even though the recipe calls for sautéed paneer, one can also add raw paneer cubes. However, stir-frying the paneer cubes for 2-3 minutes to remove the raw taste of milk and remove any excess water makes it crunchier. Stir-fry the chopped mint and cashews too, however, you can avoid sautéing the tomatoes.

Give this salad as an evening snack after playtime for kids or while watching a game. In this way, you can ensure that your child consumes veggies as well a fair amount of dairy.
