Paneer is a bliss for Vegetarians.. What if you get to make it home? Yup it sound very difficult process to make it. But in fact its very easy and you get a satisfaction of making something yourself...

Preparation time : 5 mts
Cooking time : 20 mts
Serves : 4 people


  • 8 cups Whole Milk
  • 1/4 cup Lemon Juice
Homemade Paneer


  • Take whole milk in to pan, put that on a medium heat and bring that to boil.
  • Give that a stir so that it does not stick to the pan.
  • After milk comes to a boil, pour in lemon juice.
  • This will help the milk to curdle.
  • After whey starts to separate from curd. Turn the heat off.
  • Now pour paneer on to colander lined up with cheesecloth.
  • This will help to drain off all whey from the curd.
  • Now allow the paneer to cool of a bit.
  • Squeeze out all water from the paneer.
  • Now press the paneer and form it in to round disc.

Making this right now! So easy... love your blog and all these lovely recipes to try! I was fascinated to note that this is not at all like our cottage cheese, which is very wet and still curds. They say to add the acid when the milk is hot or cool to make different cheeses. Cheese-making is AMAZERS!!! Namaste! wink
