Paneer Soda

Have you ever heard or come across the word "Paneer Soda"?! If you are from Tamil Nadu, then definitely you would not say NO. "Rose milk", "Sweet Lassi", "Paneer Soda" are the words etched in my taste buds as well as in my mind whenever i think about chennai or my childhood days. Paneer soda is one such drink i used to have or anyone in chennai for that matter. It not only quenches your thirst on a real summer day but also leaves  behind an amazing flavor in your tongue.
