In a country that is dominated by vegetarians, paneer is a rich source of proteins. Though a vegetarian diet is comparatively healthier than a non-vegetarian one, one of the major issues facing vegetarian people is that they lack sources of proteins. Lentils and paneer are the only food items that provide proteins to people following a vegetarian diet. Paneer helps to strengthen bones and teeth. The protein content of paneer makes it extremely beneficial for weight management and improving metabolism in both children and adults alike. Paneer helps to lower the risk of cancer but also improves heart health by reducing the risk of heart diseases and controlling blood pressure. Paneer also has a host of benefits for kids and should be included in their diet as well. By providing nourishment and improving growth and development among children, paneer helps to strengthen immune systems and prevents malnutrition in children. But apart from nutritional benefits, paneer also has lots of benefits for skin and hair. The Vitamin B, proteins, fatty acids and antioxidants present in paneer help to promote healthy hair and skin and also have anti-ageing benefits such as prevention of wrinkles.

Tawa Paneer tikka is a very tasty dish and this is the best platform for recipes sharing but that's not my profession I am a fshion designer and also start the Doordash Coupons business and after the job, my first choice is bake and cook some new.
