- Paneer is an Indian cheese that is high in protein, mild in flavor, and absolutely delicious! There are not any direct substitutes, so I really recommend seeking it out. Try Indian grocery stores or delis or a specialty food store. Otherwise, you can substitute with extra firm tofu that has as much moisture pressed out as possible, though I have not tried either of these swaps myself.
