For The Paneer
2 ltrs full-fat milk
2 tbsp lemon juice


For the paneer

  1. To make {span class="bold1"}paneer{/span}, 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. Alternatively, use a colander and put the paneer (along with the muslin cloth) into it. Put approx. 1 kg of weight on a plate and place this over the paneer.
  6. Remove the {span class="bold1"}paneer{/span} from the muslin cloth and after 1 hour, cut into even sized cubes or grate it and use as required.
