How to make paneer

I am going to teach you how to make paneer in this post.

According to wikipedia, paneer is a fresh unaged non-melting cheese made by curdling milk with vinegar. You could use some other acidic source like lemon juice to curdle the milk. It is a great source of protein for vegetarian.

Paneer is used in variety of dishes in form of curry or sweets. I will teach you more about paneer dishes in the future posts.

Instructions

  1. 1Boil the milk
  2. 2When the milk boils add vinegar
  3. 3When milk curdles full, turn off the gas and keep aside for 5 minutes.
  4. 4Pour mixture on to a cotton/muslin cloth and tie it with a tight knot.
  5. 5Put some heavyweight to drain remaining water and make paneer firm(for at least 2 hours). You can shape the paneer the way you want.
  6. 6Enjoy the paneer.
