Paneer is the star ingredient in some of my most favorite Indian dishes — and probably yours too! I often find myself scooping just one more nibble of chewy, milky-tasting paneer from the dish long after I'm officially full. Sure, you can buy this firm cheese at the store to make your own homemade curries, but where's the fun in that?! If you have a pot, a strainer, and some cheesecloth, you can have fresh homemade paneer cheese in about 30 minutes.
Saag paneer is a classic north Indian dish that is made up of fried paneer cheese and a creamy spinach sauce. You can find on just about any Indian restaurant menu, but it has way better flavor when you make it at home.
