I can't find paneer around here so made this myself. So easy and turned out great. I did press it longer than stated. Refrigerated until the next day to use in Palak Paneer (Indian Fresh Spinach With Paneer Cheese).
I can't believe how easy making paneer cheese is! It was great. I used lemon juice b/c I didn't have yogurt. We served with saag and homemade naan!
I made cheese! This recipe was simple and my daughter was fascinated (yippie for homeschooling). Went *very well* in "I Love Palak Paneer" (#383454).
I made this just this afternoon to use in Mutter Paneer. Easy, tasty, and great texture! I might press it for longer next time to try to even the edges out a bit because it was a little crumbly around the edges. Will definitely be using this recipe regularly!
Great flavor! It even works with fat-free milk and fat-free yogurt, though the yield is much lower (just over 1/2 cup). If you only spend a few minutes squeezing out the whey (instead of 30+ min), it still tastes great -- the texture will be softer, but that's perfectly fine in many dishes. Thank you for posting!
