This is a gorgeous, unsalted, crumbly cheese. It's great for using in veggy curries and spicy dishes. I am making it for a chilli & garlic paneer dish later :0).
So to work!!
Hardly anything!! 4 pints of full fat milk 4 tablespoons of lemon juice A big bit of cheesecloth
That's it. Cheese city here we come!!
Slop your milk in a big pan and get it on a low to medium heat http://i.imgur.com/Y0jT4aS.jpg
Stir it regularly do it doesn't catch on the bottom.
When it starts to rise and go frothy like a latte then throw your lemon juice in http://i.imgur.com/j8dDi0p.jpg
Stir for a minute or two till it curdles. It will look like albino sick basically http://i.imgur.com/p530aNV.jpg
You will then see the curd completely separate from the whey. The whey looks grey and horrible. You should keep this though when you drain it as you can use it in other things.
When it completely separates take it off the heat http://i.imgur.com/UNEERn7.jpg
Put your cheesecloth in your drainer and drain it. http://i.imgur.com/g6KD9Q6.jpg
Some people rinse it at this point to remove any taste of lemon but I can never taste it so don't.
Now you twist it and hang it to drip for half an hour. I use my tap http://i.imgur.com/CTC2cks.jpg
After half an hour put it somewhere on a sloping surface and put something heavy and flat on it for another half an hour. I use my big chopping board. This squeezes out the last of the whey. http://i.imgur.com/5jhqn7X.jpg
That's it! Unwrap the goodness!! http://i.imgur.com/wizoSqj.jpg
Slice it up and boom! Your paneer is ready to go! http://i.imgur.com/9w15tJL.jpg
You can tuck in straight away or add it to some spicy, hot sauce. Which is what I recommend! http://i.imgur.com/wuwolx2.jpg
Now i am going to learn new thing today
Why you making cheese with your face mask?!?!? 😳
Nom nom nom... I might try this one.
Boom doing recipes - the world has indeed gone bonkers!
Smart use of tap, points for that :)
Great and simple instructions, I am only still looking for the answer to the burning question, what to do with the Whey? You mentioned don't throw it away as there are other means to use it......
Yes, my mother used to do this to us. The name in our region is '' chase ''

Thank you! Seems to be simple, so i can try it! 😉
Awesome idea! Have you tried letting it sit for a few days or so? Just wondering how long it'd last for or if it alters the taste. Thanks!
This post is a bit cheesy don't you thing Boomy? Lol.
Wow I enjoyed this and really want to try it. I hope to get out soon for milk. We are on a forced 3 week lock down.
