HOW TO MAKE PANEER
You only need just 2 ingredients to make the Indian version of cottage cheese.Making paneer is very easy and no hassles whatsoever.Milk and lemon juice are the only ingredients needed.
Pour six cups of wholemilk in a heavy bottomed pan.Bring it to a boil.This must really boil.Then add half a cup of lemon juice to it.Put off the heat.At this stage you will see that the milk is curdled and separated from the whey.Cover a strainer with a clean muslin cloth and drain off the whey.Squeeze out the excess liquid and your cottage cheese is done.The end result will be a soft ,smooth dough.Leave to cool before you eat it or use it out on other recipes. Once its cooled you can knead it and add your favourite herbs and spices and season it with salt and pepper to give it an extra flavour.
