Who doesn’t like Sriracha? It’s the solution to everything. It is spicy, flavorful and jazzes up anything you add it to. “Sriracha > every sauce that has ever existed,” says, the biggest Sriracha fan ever, my hubby.
While I was spending hours and hours on Pinterest drooling over every food pin I saw, I instantly fell in love with this recipe. The original recipe was made with tofu but I decided to use Paneer instead, (Paneer = Indian cheese, tastes a lot like Ricotta). Paneer is made with whole milk that is typically curdled with a food acid (lemon juice or vinegar), then the water is drained out using a cheese cloth and the remaining curdled milk is pressed to form a tofu like consistency. The texture of paneer differs a lot from tofu, paneer is slightly gritty and dense whereas tofu is smooth and soft. You can find Paneer at any Indian grocery store or even make it at home.
This recipe is very easy to make and it doesn’t take a lot of time. It is a great appetizer for a large dinner party. Needless to say, the Sriracha Paneer was a hit at the bridal shower. Well, of course it was, it had Sriracha in it, you can’t go wrong.
