“I wanted to make paneer in a different way than usual. This turned out real good. I have had this recipe for a long time. Note: The seeds used in the seasoning are available in Indian grocery stores in a mixture called "Paanch Puran" which really means five types of seeds. You can use tese if you do not have them individually in store”
