Recipe Notes

  • Best time to eat paneer for weight loss:The best time to eat paneer is one hour before sleeping at night. You can have it during the day as well but in measured amounts but never eat it before or after a workout
  • Storage: Paneer can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Submerge it in water to keep it fresh and soft. The water prevents it from drying out.
  • Freezing Paneer: Paneer can be cooled and frozen, though it tastes slightly powdery when thawed. Therefore, I recommend making it fresh or making it a few days ahead instead of freezing it.
