Helpful hints

  • If available, substitute crumbled paneer cheese for cottage cheese.
  • Paneer is an unaged cheese made by curdling milk with lemon juice or other acid food. Substitutions include dry curd cottage cheese, farmer’s cheese, queso blanco or queso fresco. Portion is limited since this dairy product contains phosphorus.
