  2. I found a recipe for Shahi Paneer that sounds really good. (I’ve never cooked any Indian food before, but the recipe looks relatively simple). On the list of ingredients, though, it calls for “beaten curd”, and I don’t know what it is, where to find it, or how to make it. Any info. would be much appreciated :)

  3. I need a delicious recipe like the restaurant style ones. I want to make butter chicken but there are many vegetarians coming so I was thinking of substituting the meat with paneer

    please answer if you have personally tried the recipe and it is good. I dont want the paneer to be falling apart in the gravy. How can I make it stay together ?
