How to make Chenna

Chenna is made by curdling full-fat milk and draining the extra moisture. Addition of sour agents like vinegar or lemon juice result into separation of whey from milk.


If you are lazy to make chenna at home, you can use cottage cheese or paneer, which is used extensively in Indian cuisine to make everything from subzis to pulaos and is a handy ingredient in the preparation of sweets as well.

Paneer imparts not just softness but a very interesting, crumbly mouth-feel, which lands quite richly on the palate. You can simply blend paneer in a mixer grinder or mix it using your palm to give the required texture.
