One of my reader named Nancy Mosher requested this recipe for homemade paneer since she couldn’t find it anywhere in the place she live.So this post is for her..Many of you think that making paneer is so hard and needs so much effort, but actually speaking it is not a big deal..It is so much simple and easy to make your own cheese.
While making this paneer, you will get the water which is left from the curdled milk..That is called as whey water,it is so healthy..you can use it to make all kinds of stuffs..Don't throw that away..You can make rasam out of it or use that water to knead chapati dough.You can use that in your dishes..So hope this helps out...So try it and let me know what you think..
Whole Fat Milk – 2 litre
Lemon Juice – 3 tblspn
Heat milk in a wide pan and bring it to boil.
Once it comes to a boil, add lemon juice and mix well till it starts to curdle. Simmer till it is completely curdle..Add more lemon juice if needed.
Now line a colander with muslin cloth and pour this mixture through that. If you wish you can place a bowl in the bottom and collect the whey water from that and use it in your dishes.
Run this mixture in lots of cold water so that all the lemony taste go off.
Squeeze well and fold it from all sides. Place it back in the colander and top it with a flat vessel and place any weight on top.
Put it in the fridge for atleast 3 hours, till all the water gets off and you get nice block of paneer.
Cut or crumble into desire sizes and use it.
