Many a tasty creation has paneer, or cottage cheese, as its base. Be it a soft milky dessert, a refreshing salad, a flavourful subzi, pulao, roti, or any other paneer creation, the secret of its success can be attributed to the quality of the paneer used. And no store-bought paneer can be as good as a fresh, homemade batch. So, here is how you can make tasty paneer at home.

Show me for cups paneer cubes

Ingredients
2 ltrs full-fat milk
2 tbsp lemon juice
Method
  1. Put the milk to boil in a large pan, while stirring occasionally.
  2. When it starts boiling, switch off the flame and wait for 1 minute.
  3. Add the lemon juice gradually, while stirring gently and wait for 2 minutes.
  4. Once the milk has curdled, strain using a muslin cloth. This is crumbled paneer.
  5. If you want solid paneer, place the paneer into the muslin cloth in a 125 mm. (5”) paneer mould or any mould. Press it with a lid.
  6. Remove the paneer from the muslin cloth and after 1 hour, cut into even sized cubes or grate it and use as required.

Handy tip:

  1. To store paneer, place it in enough water in an air-tight container and keep refrigerated.
