How to Make Paneer

Step-by-Step

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