Want to make your own paneer at home? It's super easy to make – and only calls for three ingredients.


  • 2 litres full-cream milk
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 T vinegar

Cooking Instructions

1. Bring the milk to a boil in a heavy-based saucepan, stirring continually so that it doesn’t catch.

2. Turn off the heat and pour in the lemon juice and vinegar and allow to curdle. Allow to stand for 5 minutes.

3. Pour the mixture through a cheesecloth and allow the whey to drain. Cover the paneer in the cloth and place a heavy bowl on top. Chill for 30 minutes until firm.
