IMG_9486I would be really happy if I get soft and fresh paneer here at any nearby store but the paneer block available here in stores are neither really fresh nor soft. I wanted to cook Kadai Paneer for dinner but as I was out of paneer so I decided to try my hands on homemade paneer. Making paneer is no rocket science, it is as easy as boiling water or cooking maggi. 😀 Though you can always buy paneer when you have no time to make at home or because of any other reason. But, as everyone says “homemade is always healthy”. Store bought paneer have preservatives which sometimes leads to indigestion and sometimes they are hard.
IMG_9485For making paneer all you need is milk, lemon juice/ vinegar or curd and 30minutes from your busy schedule. And your homemade healthy paneer is ready.

Step 1- Take a deep vessel and bring the milk to boil. Add vinegar/ lemon juice or curd and stir the milk

Step 2- Turn off the flame. Immediately you will see the milk is curdling. If you continue to curdle more the paneer can be hard. Allow it to settle for a minute

Step 3- Strain the curdled milk into the muslin cloth/ handkerchief and bring it together. Place a heavy weight on it and leave for 30mins

Step 4- Now you can see a thick block of paneer. Cut them into cubes or as desired. Store in an airtight container and refrigerate for later use. Use within 2-3days as we have not added any preservatives here
