Paneer

When I look up the etymology of paneer – a delicious cheese, I find that the word itself means cheese in Persian and Hindi.  So I am guessing it is a little bit like ‘salsa’ which merely means ‘sauce’ in spanish.  We associate the word with the particular foodstuff of that region, not really understanding that the word has a broader meaning to the natives.
