Have you ever thought of combining crunchy red strawberries and fluffy soft paneer into an irresistible mousse? Although strawberries are seasonal, this mousse is surely worth a try when you can lay your hands on this juicy fruit. Here, the use of lemon juice is imperative as it brings out the full flavour of the strawberries. The paneer performs well as a setting agent to give just the right consistency to this mousse.
