I am a Chicken cracker because chicken now-a-days cheaply and easily available. It can be cooked fast. Chicken is full of protein an very less fat. It does not produce extra cholesterol in human body. Well cooked chicken is very softy. Chicken can be used as ingredient of sweet dish as well as spicy dishes.

Shafiyana Khan M. Lohani Mrs.Raziya Banu M. LOHANI Ankush Dhiman

I'm a paneer pataka bcoz its not obtained by brutal killing of animals, SATTVIC. It's highly nutritious. It's miraculous agent n gives amazing mouth feel in almost any dish say from wide range of tikkas, fritters, pizzas, pastas, gravies, stuffed parathas, Chinese dishes, sweets, indianised cheesecakes n so on... The list is endless....

Ankush Dhiman

Ankush Dhiman

I am surely a PANEER PATAKA !!! :-) If Chicken is believed to be healthier, then I would say Paneer is the healthiest and best choice for all those nutrition we find in Chicken. Moreover, it's protein rich and high in calcium. So, Dishes made with that, will go great for KIDS as well. Being a Hard core Vegetarian, I will definitely choose paneer over Chicken at any given time. It's so much easy going with any vegetarian recipe. One can apply his/her own imaginations and ideas to make various dishes from Paneer. I simply love use of cottage cheese(Paneer) in any form. I can vary any existing traditional recipes with use of the same along with my Imaginations. Paneer can substitute any non-veg dishes easily. That's how I can justify my point.

Thakkar Dhara Shah Ketul Shah Ankush Dhiman Plattershare

I am a paneer pataka because paneer is everyone's favourite. It is liked by me, my children and everyone whether veg or non-veg. It can be made in breakfast, lunch as well as dinner.It is very healthy as well as tasty.

Ankush Dhiman Plattershare

I'm a Paneer Pataka! Having had the best of both paneer and chicken, i would say that nothing beats the versitality of paneer. No doubt it is the star of our royal indian cuisine with classic paneer tikkas and a stuffing for other kebabs to being a main ingredient in rich gravies, it also serves as a super ingredient in desserts like tiramisu and cheesecake! Do anything you like with paneer, toss up a salad, dip it in fondue, add it to sandwiches or stuff it in your paratha! This beautiful ingredient is never disappointing you :). Taste and health put together it is a powerhouse of protein and calcium, a must for one's diet. Consume in the form of a sandesh or spicy fried pakodas or even chilli garlic paneer, you shall find the hero as a pizza topping too! An essential ingredient easily available at the market or prepared at home, paneer definitely is a pataka in itself , a complete food with taste, health and uniqueness which makes me a Paneer Pataka :)

Ankush Dhiman Plattershare Kirti Yadav

I am a "paneer pataka" because paneer is universal ingredient as it can be eaten by vegetarian as well as non - vegetarian. Paneer is full of protein context. Paneer is substitute of non - veg which can be consumed by every class of people. Paneer is produced from milk hence excess milk cannot be wasted.

Mrs.Raziya Banu M. LOHANI Ankush Dhiman Plattershare Shafiyana Khan M. Lohani

I am a"Paneer Pataka" because east or west Paneer is the best everywhere. Easily available, everyone's favourite specially of kids favourite. Many dishes sweet and savoury both can be made with paneer. Here, I remind a shayri and a famous quotation about paneer Jeevan mein kabhi vipatti aaye toh apatti Matt kijiye :) Kyonki Dhoodh fatne par wahi log udaas hote hain jinhe paneer bnana nhi aata😃 So here being a paneer pataka i feel very proud. And I can say proudly," paneer hai toh kya gum h"😛

Medha Devdas Shivani Rai Gunjan Arora Ankush Dhiman Plattershare Kirti Yadav

I am a "Paneer Patakha" because chahe: Dumdaar ho ya beemar, Sab kha sakte hain ise mere yaar. Budhe se lekar bachhe tak, ye h Versatile har taraf. Vegetarian, non-vegetarian ka koi panga nhi, Paneer ke sath koi danga nhi. Banao chahe namkeen ya sweet, ise karenge sare dil ❤ se eat. Reh jate sare function iske bina adhoore, Ye jaan daale starter, main course & sweets m pure. Agar nhi karte tum ise aise hi pasand, tofu, mozarella, parmesan or cheddar bhi hain iske sang 👬 To yhi hai sabse popular, sabse versatile, sabse healthy.... Jo kar deta hai har recipe ko tasty. Paneer daale har Recipe m jaan,,.. Yahi h har Shadi- Party ki Shaan 👌

I am Paneer Pataka as its awesome, health some, multifaceted some top of all pataka some.

Ankush Dhiman Sarita  Sharda Plattershare Sujeet ss

Being a non-vegetarian (full time), I would say I am a paneer cracker. As my kids like this to the core, the softness, juiciness, easy to eat, not only my kids when it comes to me and my hubby I strongly love the taste of paneer when it's done and cooked perfectly. Most of all the reasons above the secret behind why I and my hubby like this a lot is we can substitute this with chicken, lamb and fish in most of the recipes, but can retain the same flavor, texture and taste of the non-veg foods, which plays a main role in weight loss because of it's low calorie. As of today's trend everyone want to stay fit and maintain the beauty including me.

Chicken is available all over the world, different recipes, different forms... Which again helps you taste many different forms of cooking, broadening your taste for variety !! :) Plus chicken has crazy nutritional value, chicken in your meal meets the protein content you need in your body. When it's tasty,healthy and kickass... Why not CHICKEN?

I am a paneer pataka, ready for all dhamaka. Because my paneer is a star, you can have it any time yaar. Lunch , breakfast ya dinner yeh hai sabki shaan, Swaad aur sehat dono ka rakhe dhyaan. It is good source of protein, and burns fat to keep you lean. It provides calcium to make bones and teeth strong, And takes care of heart to make your life long. When you come to its variety, it is an all rounder. And its taste in every form is much more stronger. It is sold widely, not restricted by season, And can be prepared easily at home , to be eaten raw or with marination. To conclude it is easy to prepare and easy to digest, So include it in your diet to make your living healthy and brightest.
