Notes

How do you make homemade paneer?

  1. Bring milk to boil in a heavy bottom pot.When the milk comes to boil, pour 1 tbs of lemon juice or 1 tbs of curd or  1 tsp of vinegar. Immediately you can see the entire milk begins to curdle
  2. Once, it starts to curdle, turn off the heat. Pour it in a thin cheesecloth lined over the colander and rinse in running water to remove the smell of the lemon juice.
  3. Make a tight knot to a cheesecloth and squeeze more liquids. Place the muslin cloth on the plate with weight/heavy object on top. Let it sit for an hour.
  4. Remove the muslin cloth, you get the thick creamy panner is ready!.

From 1 litre of full-fat milk ideally, you should get 100gms of paneer.

How to soften frozen paneer?

If the paneer has not softened after bringing to a room temperature, you can immerse the paneer in warm water for 5 minutes. The water should be enough to cover all the paneer cubes.

Can I make vegan kheer?

Yes, substitute cottage cheese to Tofu, you can add coconut milk instead of regular milk and for the condensed milk add 3/4th cup of sugar.
