Making Paneer
Take about 1 litre full cream milk (U will get paneer around about a shape of 20 pack cigarette box) and put it to boil. When it boils just add 2 spoons of vinegar and stir until the milk curdles fully you will see that the water is separated from milk. Remove from fire and let it stand for 5 mins. Drain the water with the muslin cloth incase you are making rotis or chapatis use this water to make the dough it will be tastier. Now shape the muslin cloth into a square and put a heavy weight under it usually I keep a big handi filled with water over it.
After an hour u will see that the paneer is set just take the paneer and refrigerate it for another hour.


hope this will help Allania Smile

Just in case wondering whats handi ...its a pot or vessel it just needs something heavy to be put over it Smile

Thanks, Beesidhu. I can't wait to try.

Btw, when you say 2 spoons of vinegar, is it 2 tbsp or 2 tsp?
And what is a 'handi'?

Thanks.

I look forward to your recipe beesidhu
I had made once the one from http://www.nandyala.org/mahanandi/archives/category/eggs-milk-and-sugar/paneer/
I previously made good paneer (stoned pressed)with a full cream milk that disappeared from the supermarkets shelves some months ago it was delicious as I used to make good thick yoghurt and buttermilk.

Full cream milk is the best for panner ...if you dont get it maybe you can mix full cream powder milk with low fat just to get thichk and creamy milk ...
