Recipe Of Homemade Paneer | Homemade Cottage Cheese

Vama Dattani | Tuesday, April 22, 2014 |
As vegetarian we are hugely fond of Paneer. We always get Paneer from outside but it can easily be made at home. Homemade Paneer is always fresh as you can make it 1 hour before your dish. The best part is you can customise it the way you like. The way I have added pepper powder and herbs to milk for making herbed Paneer. Lets proceed step by step.


In a deep bottom pan add milk and bring it to boil by occasionally stirring it
 
 
 
Add pepper powder and herbs in milk
 
 
Bring it to boil and add lemon juice.
 
 
As soon as you add lemon juice to milk it will start to curdle if it doesn't add more lemon juice. Stir it so that the curdled milk doesn't stick the base.
 
 
In a muslin cloth drain the curdled milk. The curdled milk will be collected in a cloth.
 
 
Bring the cloth together and while doing so squeeze it so extra whey will come out. Put a heavy weight on the cloth and let it rest for half an hour. Paneer is ready.
