Please watch my YouTube video reference https://youtu.be/CwxU8j9UbM8
Boil 1/2 litre of milk without adding water
Squeeze 1 lemon and get juice out of it
When the milk is boiled thick, add 5 teaspoons of lemon juice to it
Milk solidified and water comes out of it. Switch off the stove.
Take an empty bowl and keep a wire filter on it, then keep a clean cotton cloth on top of the wire filter
Pour the solidified milk into the cotton cloth, so water get filtered.
Squeeze the solid milk in the cotton cloth.
Take a bowl of plain water and dip this cotton cloth with solid milk in it, for few times. We do this to get rid of the lemon flavor in the solid milk
Place the cotton cloth with solid milk again on the wire filter, keep the water bowl as weight on the solid milk to get it squeezed. Leave it as it is for 2 hours
After 2 hours, homemade fresh paneer is ready
Cut it into pieces and use it in your recipies
