Before you think what’s so good cabbage and paneer, let me tell you, if you haven’t tried this recipe you are missing out!

Pressure cooked cabbage with paneer makes an appetizing dish. Cabbage, the otherwise humble vegetable becomes flavorful and earthy when cooked with turmeric, and a few spices. It is not spicy, has no onions or tomatoes, is super quick and easy to make and is perfect for a weeknight supper. Additionally, the kids love it.

What is Paneer?

Paneer is squeaky, fresh cheese from the Indian subcontinent, is a vegetarian’s companion and is made by curdling milk with a vegetable-derived acid, for instance lemon juice. It has a milky flavor. Not to mention, you can make paneer at home; however, I buy mine from the Indian grocery store. There are many recipes online for making homemade paneer.

I used the Haldiram brand of paneer. After, trying a variety of paneer types I have zeroed in on this one. It is super soft, moist and without preservatives. It is tender like the paneer you find in India. It can be found in the frozen section, in the deep freezer in Indian grocery stores. I typically thaw it by keeping it in the refrigerator overnight. You can also microwave it on high for 5 minutes if in a time bind. However, you can buy any brand that you like or prefer.
