Starting on your first culinary expedition? Here's help. Do let me know if you require anything specific.
Boil 1 litre of full cream milk. Add a dessertspoon of fresh lime juice and a teaspoon of sour curd into the milk while it's still hot. Keep stirring as the milk curdles and seperates into paneer and whey. Place a thin muslin cloth over another vessel and pour this mixture through it so as to filter out just the paneer. Now, tie up and hang the cloth with the paneer inside so as to drain all the whey. Let stay for an hour or more.Place the paneer on a flat surface and place a heavy object on top so as to flatten it out. Let stay for sometime. Now, open cloth and cut paneer into cubes.
PS: If you want a low fat version, use 1 litre low fat milk and 1/4 litre full fat milk.
PS: The whey is rich in nutrients. It can be added to soups or used in the gravy in which you make the paneer.
