Homemade Paneer (Cheese)

So simple to make and so tasty fried or in curries… Can also add flaours such as crushed garlic, coriander etc.

4 Pints of full fat milk
6 tablespoons of lemon juice
pinch of salt

Milk cost 80p, and lemon juice pence so yes its cheaper to make than buy.
In a large pan heat a 4 pinter of milk till its bubbling but not mad boiling, stir so it doesn’t burn, then take off heat and add 5 to 6 tablespoons of lemon juice, stir in and you will see the curds start to separate if not add more lemon juice, put lid on and leave for 10 mins so the curds n whey separate fully.


Pour into a colander lined with cheesecloth/muslin and let the whey drain, you can save whey to use in smoothies etc, let it drain for 5 mins, then squeeze and excess whey out…


add salt and shape still in muslin, twist each end of muslin and put on plate, with a plate on top and a couple of tins.. leave for 30 mins, then put in fridge, the longer you leave the firmer it will be… I wrap is baking paper, will keep in the fridge for a week or more.


Lovely fried…


Author: Miki's Meals On A Budget

My name is Miki, and I live healthily on a budget, I am not a vegetarian but do have many meat free days, I have a lot of love for beans, pulses, lentils and veg, so you will see many meals posted based around these ingredients. I will also post meat and fish recipes. I spend no more than £30 per week for 2 full time adults, plus my 2 elderly inlaws evening meals (I do meals on wheels for them) and my granddaughter a couple of days a week...I love food especially savory food and curries, but I do have to watch my weight so many of my recipes will be low in fat, with the odd pie thrown in lol.
