The cheese that cant help but please!

Whether it be in your saag,your rasmalai! or floating around with some pea's,you have to love it.


The gorgeous cheese that is so versatile i could go on forever about it.

Ode to the paneer
so yummy and delicious
not only are you tasty your pretty damn nutritious! 
creamy and white a culinary delight
you keep me full up all through the night.

Cute huh! i wrote it my self :D *takes a bow*

Previously i made rasmalai! Using this wonderful dairy product,But before i made that,i also made some spinach and paneer spring rolls.

Okay italiano's! i did nick your spinach and ricotta flavour fiesta! it's amazing, what more can i say?
But these,oh these! were out of this world!


Ah,go on then :D

for these i used ready made Filo pastry sheets!

  • 1 block of Paneer cubed small (available from most Indian food shops,i also posted a recipe for it)
  • 1 medium onion,finely diced
  • 1 green chilli chopped small (you may take out the seeds if you wish,Wimps!)
  • 200g spinach
  • A knob of butter
  • salt to taste
  • Cumin
  • pinch of garam masala

In a pan fry the cumin,add the onions and cook without colour,for about 2/3 minutes.

Add the chilli and cook off for a minute or two more.

Add the spinach and wilt.Add the paneer and heat through,you can fry the paneer off before hand,until it is golden.(I usually do this but i was in a rush).

Et voile. One batch of spring roll stuffing.

I managed to get 15 out of this.

Cut your filo into a square.

Place on some of your delish filling

Fold over the top corner,make sure the filling is well enveloped behind the filo

Fold in the other two corners,make sure the filling is well covered

Roll over the covered filling,Then roll again
Use some water to seal the last edge
& deep fry,Enjoy!
I got too carried away and forgot to take a picture of the cooked product *doh!*
