Neena Gupta Paneer Recipe: Neena Gupta Shares 6-step Process Of Making Paneer At Home


Welcome to Neena Gupta's kitchen! Today, she shares her secret recipe for homemade paneer. Get ready to indulge in the creamy goodness.


Step 1: Boil 1 liter of milk in a pan. Keep stirring to avoid burning. Once it comes to a boil, turn off the heat and let it cool for 5 minutes.


Step 2: Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice or vinegar to the milk. Stir gently until the milk curdles and the whey separates. This is the key step for making paneer.


Step 3: Strain the curdled milk through a muslin cloth or a strainer. Rinse it with cold water to remove any traces of lemon juice or vinegar.


Step 4: Gather the edges of the cloth and squeeze out the excess water. Place a heavy object on top of the cloth to press the paneer and remove any remaining water.


Step 5: After 30 minutes, remove the weight and unwrap the cloth. You will have a solid block of paneer. Cut it into cubes or use as desired.


Step 6: Congratulations, you have successfully made paneer at home! Use it in your favorite dishes like palak paneer or paneer tikka masala.


Bonus tip: For a richer and creamier paneer, use full-fat milk. You can also add a pinch of salt or spices like cumin or black pepper for added flavor.


Now that you know the 6-step process, you can make fresh paneer anytime you want. Say goodbye to store-bought paneer and hello to homemade goodness.
