Paneer

Standard

Most of us at some time have some split milk on out hands, and are not sure what to do with it.

One option is to make it into a sweet. The other option is to make paneer, which is what I’ll elaborate on today.

Ingredients:

1 ltr split milk

Method:

  • Boil the milk till the curd separates completely from the whey.
  • drain the curd
  • wrap it into a muslin cloth tightly and hang it to dry overnight. This will remove all excessive moisture.
  • Keep the wrapped paneer in chilled water for 30 minutes to give it good texture
  • Then unwrap the paneer and set it into the shape of a block and keep it pressed under a heavy weight for 3-4 hours.
  • The paneer is then ready to be cut into cubes for cooking.
