  1. This is one of my favourite dishes and I often cook variants of it. One thing I have found is that western cottage cheese tends to be very loose and does not react well to frying. If you can’t find paneer, an excellent substitute is halloumi cheese which is available in all supermarkets here, can be treated exactly like paneer, and has a similar taste and texture.
