comment Vinegar softens the bite of raw onions?
I've noticed the same thing when soaking cut onion in lime or lemon juice. Adding cut onion soaked in lime juice to salsa makes the onion much less pungent.

comment Does paneer have to be cooked?
You're right. Properly made paneer does not melt. It may disintegrate if it's not made properly, but I have never had paneer melt when heated, like cheddar. Harold McGee's On Food and Cooking has an explanation for why acid-set cheese do not melt with heat.

comment Preserve cut potatoes
