A Little on Paneer…

For those who might be asking themselves ‘what is paneer?’, paneer is an Indian cottage cheese that’s high in protein and calcium so it’s a great dairy option for both children and adults. It’s a versatile cheese that can be used in all sorts of dishes; I’ve used paneer not only for breakfast recipes, but for main meals too, like my low carb Lettuce Enchiladas with Black Bean & Fresh Paneer Filling and my Green Paneer. It’s also great served skewered and marinated in my Tandoori Marinade.

Combined with all the spices, garnished with a sprinkling of coriander and served on parathas (Indian flatbread), these Scrambled Paneer Frankies with Parathas offer a taste of India from your own kitchen.
