Pasanda is a meat dish popular throughout South Asia and India. It is typically made with fried and marinated muttonand spices. Paneer pasanda is a vegetarian alternative to a traditional pasanda. It’s essentially cheese covered in gravy. This dish is guaranteed to leave you satiated and in need of a nap, so be careful driving home after sitting down to a plate of delectable paneer pasanda. We recommend some tea after having this meal to help with digestion. 

Health Benefits 

Most people are rightfully skeptical about the health benefits of any cheese-based dish. After all, too much consumption of cheese can have a negative impact on your health. But cheese, especially paneer, is not without certain benefits. It’s a great source of calcium and protein, two substances vital to the body. Protein is the building block of all cells in the body, and calcium helps improve bone and teeth health. Paneer also possesses linoleic acid, a fatty acid that increases the functionality of the body’s fat burning processes.
