How to make Homemade Paneer??

Sometimes when you have excess milk at home, and you dont know how to use it, the best alternatives are curd, paneer, kheer and even halwa...

You must know just how to use the right thing at the right time....

I generally make paneer at home, to use in bhurjee and to make paneer parathas... I like to use freshly made paneer for this.
Its quiet simple to make. you just need

1l Milk
1.5 tbsp lime juice
2tbsp Fresh Cream  (optional)
Few ice cubes
Muslin cloth

  • Heat milk.
  • Add in the fresh cream
  • When it starts to boil.
  • Switch off the gas..
  • Now add in the lime juice.
  • When the water separates, add in few ice cubes.
  • After a while, 
  • Strain it in a muslin cloth using a strainer.
  • Tie the muslin cloth on a tap to remove excess water.
  • In order to make use paneer in making a sabzi like paneer butter masala or anything same, put a brick over the muslin cloth in which u have strained the paneer.
  • The paneer will become stiff and can be cut into cubes easily.
  • In order to make malai paneer just add in the fresh cream.
