Paneer is an Indian cheese. Milk is curdled and the curds are separated and pressed to drain away excess water. Then it is dipped in chilled water to give it that texture.Queso Blanco, Queso Fresco, farmer cheese and dry curd cottage cheese can be used as substitutes, they're almost identical to paneer.

Khoya is basically dried milk, quite similar to Ricotta cheese except that it is made from milk instead of whey. It is made by simmering milk for several hours. Once the water is evaporated, the remaining coagulated solids is Khoya.

Nutmeg as an intoxicant? Never heard of that Shocked

Nutmeg is an intoxicant but you'd have to eat a lot of it.

Similarly Cinnamon is bad for the liver in massive doses.

The amount one uses in cooking is fine and beneficial to health, anything in large doses will kill you.


I never thoguht I would ever share that in conversation..... just a fact from my treasure trove of utterly useless information.

Salam,

I didn't think Nutmeg was that lethal (joke)  Cheesy. Actually it's got a lovely smell. It's used in lots of different types of foods such as cakes & in Mashed Potatoe (how I like to use it). I don't use it in Desi foods, but I can imagine it being used in Korma's or any typa dish that uses makhan, or dhai.... Not something we tend use in Bengali dishes, or I maybe mistaken. However, cinnamon... That's another story. We use it in anything & everything... As long as it's not fish!   Smiley

Ma'Salam.

Nutmeg can make you high! It's supposed to give you a happy boost in smaller doses too.

Actually poppy seeds are good as a natural sleep aid, we have this dish indian style khuskhus made with poppy seeds, it's good to eat as an evening meal as it helps you sleep....on the other hand poppy's are a well known opiate!


Sr Cinders could you post up Bengali fish recipes pleeeeease???

I adore Bengali fish, my closest Bengali friend lives miles from me otherwise I'd be eating at hers all the time ask for her help!

Salam all,

@ Sr Fozia, yep I will post something up. I don't really follow or 'do' recipes, but I will try to put something up for fish. I don't know if you guys will like it though. Was trying desperately to find an email I'd written for a friend for a  prawn curry recipe,  but I  cannot find it anywhere!
