    Hi Aarthi,

    Ive just bump into your blog, and just walking through it, and found this post.

    just a few questions,
    1) what is paneer? is it a millk?

    2) Do you consider for the 2nd step to make a cream cheese, curd is yogurt right?

    thanks in advance if you can help me in that, cream cheese is quite pricey.

      Paneer is Indian cottage cheese. It s a milk product obtained through curdling of milk.
      In this recipe, the first step involves making paneer. In the second step, she uses this paneer to make the cream chees. Yogurt and paneer are used to prepare this cream cheese. I hope that I cleared your queries.

    So theis recipe makes about 1 cup.

    @Swatiu can add little salt if u need to..but salt is not needed since yogurt gives the sourness
