paneer recipes |  Indian paneer recipes.  Paneer is a type of fresh cheese that is believed to have originated in the Indian sub-continent. Also known as cottage cheese, it is used widely in Indian, oriental, continental, Persian and other cuisines. Its captivating succulence, soothingly fresh taste, and versatile absorption of flavors make it a brilliant addition to any recipe.

Be it a soft milky dessert, a refreshing salad, a flavorful subzi, pulao, roti or any other paneer creation, the secret of its success can be attributed to the quality of the paneer used. For this reason many people prefer to make their own paneer at home, even though it is readily available in supermarkets under varied brands. Homemade paneer is also easy to make, so why not give it a try?

How to make homemade paneer

1. First boil milk.
2. While it is still boiling, add some lemon juice to it gradually.
3. Turn off the flame and wait for a few minutes. You will see the milk curdling.
4. Once the milk has curdled, strain out the whey water using a muslin cloth. What remains on the cloth is crumbled paneer.
5. If you want solid paneer, place the paneer in the muslin cloth into a 125 mm. (5”) paneer mould or any other mould and press it with a lid.
6. After an hour, you can use the paneer, cubed or grated.

You can use the following two foolproof recipes to make perfect homemade paneer:
1. Made with Cow’s milk.
2. Made with Buffalo Milk Paneer

7 Tips to make perfect Paneer at home

1. Make sure you boil the milk well in a big, deep non-stick pan.
2. You must add the lemon juice when the milk is boiling or else it will not curdle well.
3. If you feel the paneer has not curdled sufficiently, turn on the flame and boil the milk for a minute or two more, stirring occasionally.
4. The milk has to curdle really well to get soft paneer
5. Once curdled, make sure you drain the water completely. You can even tie the paneer in a muslin cloth and hang it up for a little while to let the water drain completely.
6. To make perfect cubes of the paneer, you need the paneer mould or paneer press, which is readily available in all utensil shops. This will help you get a perfect shape and uniform thickness.
7. Always put a weight on the paneer once you have removed the excess water and shaped it using a paneer making vessel. You can use jugs or bowls filled with water to apply the required pressure on the paneer to compress it into a solid.
