Chanar Dalna | Paneer Curry (Homemade)

Chanar Dalna is one of favorite recipe.I think you are not getting properly that what is Chana? Here Chana means nothing the homemade paneer only. How you are making paneer at home that is exactly. In previous Bengal we did not have  chances to buy paneer/cottage cheese from market. So homemade chana/paneer was the only way to make this traditional dish.Still there is tradition to have this delicacy in some auspicious occasions in Bengal. But it is almost different from the market bought , looks wise , taste wise too. Healthy and tasty combination of vegetarian recipe which you ever get in one recipe. So try this tempting dish .

As per nutritional value homemade paneer is more beneficial than market bought as it is more hygienic too.
It is good source of Protein,Vitamin B12, Calcium and Vitamin D too.
