Homemade Paneer 


  • 1 litre Milk
  • 11/2tsp vinegar or 1/2tsp lemon juice or citric acid(any one of them can be used)


    • Boil the milk in a pan.
    • When it's boiling add lemon juice or Vinegar or Citric acid which ever you are using, while stirring.
    • If citric acid is being used, dissolve it in 2-tbsp water before adding.
    • When milk curdles full turn off the gas and keep aside for 5 minutes.
    • Pour it on to a cotton/muslin cloth and tie it with a tight knot.
    • When all the water is drained from the paneer shape it into a rectangular block.
    • Now place the cloth under heavy weight for 2-3 hours before using it.

    Note: Do not throw away the leftover water as it can be used for kneading chapati or paratha dough.
