Dear friend!
I found a lot time ago thanks to my Indian friends here in Japan (we play a lot of cricket here!) that cheese wrked well with curry!
On the other hand Japanese tofu also works well with curry!

Delicious! I'm happy to see this because after reading your post on how to make paneer, I wondered how many ways are there to serve it. You think it (the paneer) would also be good with your recipe for methi thepla? I've given up on finding fenugreek leaves so I'll just do the recipe without.

Ann I just made the Methi Thepla but had to substitute the fenugreek leaves with parsley leaves (so maybe it should have a different name?)

Anyway, it was delicious all by itself as I had no pickles or chutney...or paneer! I also tried the paneer recipe but am afraid that the milk I used was too much pasteurized. The milk didn't curdle like it should have when I added the lemon juice (when the milk was boiling). I'll try this next time with fresh, unpasteurized milk!
