I am going to try Mutter Paneer tonight for the first time, a traditional Indian vegetarian dish. The recipe calls for cottage cheese. Vegans, what would be a good substitute for the cottage cheese for this particular dish?

I've never seen mattar paneer made with cottage cheese. Tofu works well as a paneer substitute.



Here's a nice video and recipe. Use tofu! http://www.manjulaskitchen.com/2007/...paneer-cheese/

I substitute crumbled firm tofu for cottage cheese and ricotta. The taste isn't the same but it gets you a similar texture. I've never had Mutter Paneer though so I don't know how well it will work in that.

Has anyone ever made soy panner? I hear you can make the regular by boiling a gallon of milk with the juice of a lemon and the separate the curds and whey. I wonder if it would work with fresh whole soy milk? Basically, making tofu probably isn't too much different, tho. Maybe it's worth a try? If anyone tries let us know how it goes!

Seems like a lot of fuss and bother compared to just buying some tofu and using that instead. In fact, some people in India refer to as 'Soy Paneer' is what we know as 'tofu'...
