Homemade Paneer or Indian Cottage Cheese or Chana

Paneer or Indian Cottage cheese is a tasty and healthy for all of us. There is so many  Paneer preparation which we all love to have. But after shifted in Canada i am really not that fortunate to find good quality paneer (now i know from where i can get it), so i started making paneer at home. First or second time the result was not that good.But slowly i am able to make fine quality Paneer like shop. And sometime my husband don't even understand that the Paneer is home made or from shop. Few of my friends are asking for Home made paneer recipe so my this recipe for them.

Preparation time: 10 mints.
U need 4 to 5 hr to get good quality paneer.

1.Heavy creamy Milk (i use 3.5%): 1 liter.
2.Half cup Vinegar.
3.Half cup water.
4.One cheese cloth.


Put Milk in a heavy bottomed vessel, when it starts boiling adds the Lime juice. Slowly the milk 
turn into chena.(when the water turn into green colour).

Drain the cheana in a cotton or cheese cloth. Wash the chena under running cold water so the flavor of lime juice will goes off.

Now squeeze the water and tightly make a knot and hang the chena for 2 to 3 hr. And after that put something heavy on top of the cloth wrapped Paneer for another 2  hr.

Now slowly open the knot and cut the Paneer in any shape.
