The Marathi language version of preparing homemade Paneer is published in this –Article
Time for preparation: 10 minutes
Serve: 3 Persons
½ Liter Milk (whole buffalo Milk)
2 Tablespoon White Vinegar
1 Soft thin Cloth
Boil the Milk in a vessel of medium thickness, on a slow flame.
Then add the Vinegar slowly in to the Boiling Milk and mix it slowly and nicely on a slow flame.
When the color of the Milk changes and the water starts separating from the Milk, remove the vessel from the fire.
Keep a clean thin cloth over the strainer, pour the Milk into it, and then pour two glasses of cold Water over the strainer. This is to separate the Panner from the water.
Tie the Panner tightly in a clean piece of cloth and then hang the cloth for 30 minutes. This is to drain the excess water from the Paneer.
Then keep the cloth over a tray or the backside of a plate and keep any heavy weight over the Paneer for 4-5 hours. This is to compress the Paneer into a slice like shape.
Then remove the Paneer from the cloth and cut into medium sized cubes.
