** You can fry paneer on a pan till it changes its color to golden brown its a kind of add on to the Curry.
** If you are using frozen paneer like me then put them in boiling water with some salt or you can do it in microwave 10 - 12 secs and immediately take out. This will make your paneer soft and tasty.
