It is suggested to deep fry paneer cubes in oil before adding them to the curry. Make sure that the oil you are frying them in is moderately hot, and not boiling. Fry the paneer until brown on both sides, and then take them off. If you don’t want to fry them, cut the paneer cubes and immerse them in boiling water.
