Homemade Paneer



Homemade paneer is a type of cheese made from dairy milk. It is a popular ingredient in Indian cuisine and is used widely across India. It is a fresh cheese that is not aged and has a soft, crumbly texture. It is made by curdling heated milk with an acid medium such as lemon juice or vinegar, and then draining off the whey. The curds are then pressed into a block and cut into cubes. Homemade paneer has a mild, milky flavor and can be used in a variety of dishes, from curries to desserts.
