List Of Ingredients:
- Milk-1 litre
- Vinegar*-1-2 tbsp
- Cold Water-500 ml
* Instead of vinegar lemon juice can also be used.
Steps To Prepare:
Boil milk in a boiling pan. I have taken here little more than 1 litre of milk.
When the milk starts to boil, add one tablespoon of Vinegar to it and switch off the flame.The milk will start to curdle up. Keep on stirring with the help of a spatula.
Place a strainer on the top of an empty vessel. Place a muslin cloth over the strainer. Carefully turn over the curdled milk on it. All the paneer will be left behind in the strainer. Pour chilled water over it.
Lift the muslin cloth and squeeze it so that all the water gets discarded from it. Place this over a colander or a metal surface where all its excess water can strain out.
Place a flat plate over it and then a heavy item over it. I am placing a marble rolling board over it. Let it stay like this for at least half an hour.
After that unwrap the muslin cloth. You will get a solid piece of “Paneer”. This much amount of milk has produced somewhere 200-250 grams of “Paneer”.
Store it in a water filled container for later use. You can cut this single paneer chunk in cubes or slices as per your requirement or eat it as is it. Try this freshly home made healthy paneer recipe and enjoy it in you favourite Palak Paneer or Paneer Bhurji !!
