can be made at home too -
boil full fat milk, add few drops of lemon
wait until fat gets separated from water
press all water out, put the milk solid under really heavy object in muslin cloth to make sure it compresses to form a brick type structure.
Two of my favourite foods Curry and Cheese. Never thought to combine the two together. Heat added.
my wife also grates it, slits and stuffs a supermarket naan bread with the grated cheese and then cooks the naan in a pre-heated oven for about 10 mins, paneer naan - mouth watering

just referred to as asian because until the supermarkets started stocking them they were only available in asian shops, also as far as I know it originated from asian sub continent

Cos it's an Indian version of soft cheese
Its really nice - works out £4 a kg which is cheaper than the Indian/Asian local food joints as well where it typically sells for £5 a kg - I picked up quite a few last time when I had to use up all my Nectar swipe-win vouchers for scanning and getting the points loaded to my account

In general, if you want paneer to soak up more marinade or sauce then cut it into cubes then soak overnight in cold water. It doesn't work as well with the really processed versions of paneer but excellent with homemade or more traditional varieties, I haven't tried this particular brand so couldn't comment.

I don't know if you know anything about paneer or not, but it's not like say cottage cheese where its runny. It's more like a feta cheese. Usually a really mild flavour,

I'd say going by his question it's odds on he doesn't!
more like a halloumi, but nowhere near as salty. paneer is a lot like tofu in the sense that it is a great blank canvas for adding flavours.

True!
We make it at home itself.
Tastes much better instead of the supermarket artificial taste.
Home made is definitely a lot better, but store bought is not bad at all too.

Great when spiced and used in Indian food.

I love it crumbled into a spicy pea dish. Has the consistency of a bhoona spiced mince that way, but much healthier.

Also delicious with spiced spinach.
