Paneer Dodi or Indian Coagulating Curdling Agent, is a plant native to India. It is commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine as a natural curdling agent for milk and as a digestive aid. It is also believed to have a number of other medicinal properties, including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. The plant is a small shrub with delicate, white flowers and small, red fruit.
The dried plant is often ground into a powder, which can be added to food or used to make a tea. It has a slightly bitter taste and a pungent smell. While it has a long history of use in traditional medicine, more research is needed to fully understand the potential health benefits of Paneer Dodi.
