Recipe – Paneer

To make Paneer is very easy and for my US friends, it is India’s cottage cheese but it reminds me of tofu.

You take milk unpasteurized bring to boil until the water is gone

add vinegar or lemon juice, a cap full or two, into warm water

then mix into the milk

the curdling will begin

remove from the heat and drain through a muslin or cheesecloth

let hang 15-20 minutes until all water is gone, squeeze excess water

and slice typically in squares

Paneer has really no flavor of its own but takes on the flavor of the ingredients and spices you use to

cook it with.  In India, it is a dish for vegetarians but at times it is nice not to have a heavy meal
