How to make Paneer?

  •  Milk -- 1 litre
  • 11/2tsp vinegar or 1/2tsp lemon juice or citric acid
● Boil the milk in a pan.
● When it's boiling add lemon juice or vinegar or citric acid which ever you are using,
while stirring.
● If citric acid is being used, dissolve it in 2-tbsp water before adding.
● When milk curdles full turn off the gas and keep aside for 5 minutes.
● Pour it on to a cotton/muslin cloth and tie it with a tight knot.
● When all the water is drained from the paneer shape it into a rectangular block.
● Now place the cloth under heavy weight for 2-3 hours before using it.
● Note: Do not throw away the leftover water as it can be used for kneading chapati or
paratha dough
