"For this recipe, we took inspiration from Indian curry with paneer and experimented with a popular European grill cheese: Halloumi cheese. Halloumi has a similar texture to paneer, but the taste is different. Golden, crispy halloumi cheese is surprisingly tasty when tossed in a hearty curry with sweet potato and peas. If you want to experiment with new flavor combinations in your kitchen, or just love halloumi cheese, give it a try! If you want to try paneer curry, you can check out the palak paneer recipe on our platform."
