i’m planning for another indian dinner and so i made paneer today. it’s very easy, just bring milk to boil, add lemon juice and stir until the milk curdles. strain on musselin cloth and rinse with cold water. press into a solid form and you’re done. (if you need more detailed instructions – there are plenty around on the net…)
- 1.5l milk (3.8% fat)
- 5 tbsp fresh lemon juice
i think i could have done with a bit less lemon juice, but i was impatient while waiting for the milk to curdle. now the cheese is in the fridge and i’m curious how it will turn out.
in the lower right corner you can see whey – this is what’s left after straining the paneer.

my last paneer tasted like washing powder – so be careful with these musselin cloth!!!
i rinsed it in boiling water for a few minutes before using it – since i heard of similar stories 🙂
