Tofu is made from soy milk, and bears close resemblance to paneer made from regular milk. It has been made famous by the Chinese, Thai and other south east Asian cuisines. It also also found its way into India in past decade and used in number of dishes adapted from neighboring countries and some within the country. It is healthy to eat and tastes nice, so why not also use it at home to make a dish for yourself.
