Made homemade paneer recently, f
Happy to say it turned out great.
Here's how I did it:
I used a large pot, 1 gal of cold, whole milk. Simmered (being careful not to boil) stirring very often until the temperature reached 200F. (this isn't the picture of that, I forgot to take one).
After a few minutes had passed, I stirred the pot gently, then slowly scooped out some of the curd, then drained the rest of the contents into a cheesecloth lined sieve.
Let it drain a bit, then added a sprinkle of salt, and stirred, gently.
After the curd drained a minute or so I put on silicone gloves, the disposable kind. This mixture was still pretty hot, the gloves diffused some of that heat. Then tightly wrapped the mixture in the cheesecloth to strain, shaping it into a flat-ish, round-ish shape.
Then I put it in the sink on a cutting board, with a heavy weight on top (my boiling pot and milk jug, both filled with water).
I made this!:)
