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.
- Put the milk to boil in a large pan, while stirring occasionally.
- When it starts boiling, switch off the flame and wait for 1 minute.
- Add the lemon juice gradually, while stirring gently and wait for 2 minutes.
- Once the milk has curdled, strain using a muslin cloth. This is crumbled paneer.
- 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.
- Remove the paneer from the muslin cloth and after 1 hour, cut into even sized cubes or grate it and use as required.
- To store paneer, place it in enough water in an air-tight container and keep refrigerated.
