Just like me, you also thought that Paneer could only be used for making any gravy sabji, parathas, starters, etc. right? But, Paneer can also be used to make desserts and sweets. Yes, you can make Paneer Jalebi, Paneer Kheer, etc. and many such sweets and desserts. In fact, you can do this one thing just like how I do; you can make Paneer at home and then use that Paneer to make parathas or starters or gravy sabjis, etc. and then see the difference in taste. You will realize that the taste of home-made Paneer is way better than the one bought from outside and used to make dishes.
