How to Make Paneer (Indian Cheese)

  • Boil the milk, stirring regularly so it doesn't burn.
  • Remove from heat, add lemon juice. The milk starts curdling right away.
  • Have another pot ready. You will also need a strainer covered with a cheesecloth.
  • Scoop all the curds and whey (the liquid) into the strainer.
  • Wrap the cheesecloth so as to cover the curds completely. Press the cheesecloth a little bit with your hands or a spoon, squeeze all the whey out of the paneer.
  • You now have a block of paneer.
  • Use in vegetable dishes, as starters etc.
