Home made paneer/How to make paneer/Indian cottage cheese

What is the big deal about home made paneer? Its fresh and you can eat  your fill without any guilt. These days lowfat paneer is available .But i like to make paneer at home (you might think that I am crazy for making everything at home). Also I prefer homemade paneer over store bought ones because its so fresh and its so yummy . Here is how I made it ...

Rest time:20+30 min
Cooking time:5 min
Yields: 20-25 paneer cubes

  • 5 cups milk(I used 2 percent milk).
  • 1 large lime/lemon.
  • Heat the milk until warm.
  • Add lime juice to it and give it a stir. Now milk will start to curdle
  • Switch off the flame now .
  • Cover it with lid and let it stay undisturbed for 15-20 min.
  • Take a clean thin cloth or may be you can use your handkerchief .
  • Put the cloth inside the colander .
  • Keep this arrangement inside the kitchen sink.
  • Pour the milk with care (dont hurt yourself).
  • If its hot ,leave it for sometime before you touch it .let the water get strained
  • After it cools give a nice squeeze to filter out the water .
  • Keep this arrangement inbetween two plates.
  • Put some heavy weight in top to press it well (to get the shape) like 20-25 min .

  • Take it out of the cloth cut it down and enjoy making your favourite paneer recipe.
