Methi Malai Paneer Recipe

By Suchita Tripathi

Methi Malai Paneer is a delicious recipe of Indian origin. It’s made with paneer (cottage cheese) and fenugreek leaves, which gives it its unique flavour. Methi means “fenugreek” in Hindi, and malai is cream. The recipe calls for the mixture to be cooked until the curry becomes thick and creamy. This dish can also be served as an appetizer or side dish at dinner parties, weddings, etc., but we like to do it as a main course with chapatis or naan bread! Create your new favourite dish today!
