    Imnohos, here in UK we get fresh packed paneer. I have never used frozen Indian paneer but probably it will be ok if you defrost it properly. Ask at the grocer if you can cook Paneer dishes with the frozen ones once they are thawed properly. I hope it helps. I have one more Paneer recipe in my Channel, sharing the link here.
