Paneer and Potato cheese dumplings in an almond-cream sauce. A royal Indian treat!

I have used Almond Breeze almond milk for this recipe. I always like to use almond milk for my recipes to replace cream for my gravy recipes  for a healthier option. And I always use them for my milkshakes. And if I wanted to make vegan recipes, almond milk always stays in my refrigerator. You can find these Almond Breeze products in the refrigerated section of your grocery store.

Paneer is a type of fresh cheese that can be made easily at home.  Paneer has a milky flavor on its own, so it taste best when paired with strong spicy flavor like curries or tikka. This is a cheese that won’t melt like mozzarella or cheddar will. We can add them on any curry, or crumble them into flat breads like roti. Or even add them to kebabs and the cheese will keep its shape and chewy texture. Anything with paneer is a definite win. The texture of paneer is similar to greek feta which is prepared in a similar manner. This healthy and delicious vegetarian curry can be on your plate in one hour. It is one of the popular recipe amongst the north Indian recipes. I have seen that it’s a part of most restaurants menu. Goes well with steamed rice, ghee rice, Pulao,paratha, parotta, naan or roti. Paneer can be replaced with tofu also. Don’t add lots of cashews to make it rich, it will spoil the originality of the taste.
