How to Make Special Paneer (Indian Cheese)

  • Boil milk in a stainless steel pot and stir the milk regularly, to make sure it doesn't burn.
  • Once the milk is boiling thoroughly, remove the pot from the stove and add lemon juice. The milk would start curdling.
  • Have another pot ready. You'll also need a strainer covered with a cheesecloth.
  • Pour the curds into the strainer, letting it drain into the pot.
  • Wrap the cheesecloth so as to cover the curds completely.
  • Press the cheesecloth a little with your hands or a spoon to squeeze every last bit of liquid out of the paneer.
  • Now, you have a block of paneer.
  • Cut into desired sizes and use.
