There’s no point cribbing over spoilt milk, follow these steps to turn the milk into paneer.

If curdling doesn’t begin within a few seconds, add some more lemon juice.

Step 1:

Boil the milk. If you are using very cold milk, then start boiling it on low flame and then increase the flame a little, to reach medium heat. If you boil refrigerated milk at high flame, the paneer may smell strange.

Step 2:

Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and turn off the flame as soon as the milk starts curdling.

Step 3:

Set a colander on top of a container and place a thin muslin cloth over it. Since we used lemon juice to curdle the milk, the paneer will need to be rinsed under water to remove the aroma of lemon.

Step 4:

Drain off the water completely from the paneer, and squeeze off any excess water left.

Step 5:

Keep the cloth in a plate that has holes in it. Place a heavy utensil on the paneer and let it sit for an hour.

Step 6:

Cut the paneer into cubes and place it in the refrigerator.
