How to make paneer

  1. To make paneer, rinse a deep non-stick pan with ¼ cup of water and quickly simmer it for 2-3 minutes. This will prevent milk from getting burnt as the water forms a protective layer between the pan and milk. This is generally done in stainless steel pans but, if you have an old non-stick pan it is advisable to make this extra effort so, that the milk does not burn.
  2. Rotate the pan in a clockwise motion, so the water spreads evenly in the pan. Discard the water and pour 2 liters of full fat-milk. Full fat milk is highly recommended while making paneer as it yield more chenna after curdling resulting into a thick block of paneer.
  3. Bring it to a boil on a medium high flame. This would take around 8-10 minutes.

How to set curd

  1. To make Curd at home using Buffalo milk, rinse a deep non-stick pan with 2 tbsp of water and simmer it for 2-3 minutes.

If using a stainless steel patila, you can set the curd in the same vessel.
  2. Rotate the pan in a clockwise motion, so the water spreads evenly in the pan. This will prevent milk from scorching as the water forms a protective layer between the pan and milk.
  3. Discard the water and pour the full fat milk into the pan. We have used buffalo milk here as it is a full fat milk. The higher content of fat in this milk results in a very creamy, rich and thick curd as opposed to other types of milk. Learn how to make curd at home in detail.
