Pan-fried Paneer Cheese

While paneer is very nice when cooked with a flavor-some sauce, I find it also very appealing if it's just fried in a pan like this as it develops a lovely crispy outside.


  • 3 tbsp sunflower oil

  • 200g of paneer, cut into half cm strips

  • 2 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced



  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan on a medium to hot heat.

  2. Add the paneer and the cloves of garlic to the oil.

  3. Cook the paneer, moving it around in the pan a bit until one side is golden brown. This should take 5 minutes or so.

  4. Turn over the paneer and fry the other side until golden.

  5. Don't worry if the garlic is starting to burn and go black, that's normal.

  6. Carefully remove the paneer from the pan, avoiding taking any of the blackened garlic with it.

  7. Serve with some saucy curry and rice.

Serves 2.
