Today! And I’m not even done my first java… I learned what jaggery is! Mwa ha ha! Thanks Kelly for having me look up different ways to cook paneer!
Jaggery is basically a sugar made from sugar cane… where gur is a sugar that comes from palm trees. Both are used a lot in Indian cooking. And I didn’t know that ghee is used because of it’s ability to be heated to a more extreme temperature than regular butter – because all the milk products and remaining liquids are boiled off beforehand… !!! I’ve used it in curry – but I’ll bet it’s a great way to fry that paneer! You can also add flavours to it… cumin, etc.
In searching for ways to deal with paneer – I found these great sites … 🙂
So… java number two, coming up! Let’s see what else I can learn before I’ve been up one hour. lol 🙂
