Home Made Paneer Cheese
The most delicous, creamy curry I have ever made was Paneer Butter Marsala.  A mild, creamy, slightly nutty curry with soft, paneer cheese as the main ingredient. You can buy paneer cheese from any Indian market, but it is expensive. It is so easy to make yourself, and tastes so fresh, it is well worth making your own.butter paneer

Here is a delicious dish to use your lovely fresh paneer, Paneer Butter Marsala.
