1 Hr 15 Min

Ingredients

8 c
whole milk
1/4 c
lemon juice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix lemon juice in 1/2 cup hot water and put aside.
2
Boil the milk in a heavy bottomed pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, making sure not to burn bottom.
3
Just as the milk starts to boil, add lemon/water mix gradually and stir gently. You will see the curd will start to separate from the whey. Remove from heat.
4
Once the milk fat and whey have separated, drain using a stainer lined with cheese cloth.
5
Wrap and rinse with cold water. This is very important! If you skip rinsing, your paneer will taste like lemons :(
6
Knead paneer enough to make smooth.
7
Wrap tightly and press with a heavy pan/pot for 1 hour. Longer for firmer cheese.
8
Next put into refrigerator and chill until you're ready to fry it.
