Fettuccine paneer alfredo

Here is fettuccine with cilantro and paneer (Fresh Indian cheese). You may substitute it with chicken or shrimp. A pulse of fresh garlic and cilantro with cream gives a delicious and fragrant flavor to the appealing alfredo sauce and fettuccine. Try it!

What you need: Serves 4
1 lbfettuccine pasta
½ lb paneer (Indian cheese) cut into cubes
A little parmesan cheese grated
4 sprigs of fresh whole cilantro
2 tsp butter
2 tsp olive oil
¼ cup milk
½ cup cream
¼ tsp red chili flakes, optional -- for an extra spice kick
¼ tsp white pepper powder
2 tsp fresh cilantro chopped
3 garlic cloves chopped
½ cup scallions chopped
2 tsp carrot grated, for garnish


Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or as per instructions on the box.

Meanwhile, wash, chop and prep the vegetables. In a food processor, add cilantro, 1 chopped garlic clove and cream. Give it a few pulses until the mixture is light green.
