      Indian often is gluten free, and this one is great.

        I love the mixture of spices used in this paneer. What a great vegetarian dinner.

          It tasted soooooo gooooood. The leftovers didn't last very long. I'm very fortunate to have such a multicultural grocery store nearby, and reasonably-priced niche shops for everything else I can't find at the big chains. But really, the big chain has just about everything I need for cooking Indian food. I've only been to the Indian dry goods shop once in the last year, and that was to buy mango powder.
