Where to buy fresh Paneer (Valley pref)

hey there eaters,
I have found an amazing saag paneer recipe and have made it once with ricotta saltada cheese as I couldn't seem to find fresh paneer here in the SF Valley (I'm in Sherman Oaks). I know I could go over the hill to India Sweets & Spices but... I'm lazy.

Anyone know where to find paneer? I guess I could make it myself, but see above on the lazy factor.

Thanks !

  1. Isn't there an India Sweets & Spices in Canoga Park? Googling around it looks like there is:

    22011 Sherman Way
    Canoga Park, CA

      There is also an India Sweets & Spices close to Glendale in Atwater Village just in case you happen to be closer to the east part of the valley.

        thanks guys! real fresh paneer! the ricotta saltada was pretty good but too firm and a bit more savory than paneer. I will check out Canoga Park as it is a little closer than Atwater.

    2. Isn't paneer basically large-curd cottage cheese cut into cubes and fried?

      1. There's also an IS&S in Canoga Park and also in Northridge at Parthenia/Lindley.
