I'll always be looking for Paneer recipes and I have to say that this is the best.
Thanks for posting such simple a delicious recipe.

Thanks :-)

I am glad you liked it

wuts da difference between paneer and cheese?

Cheese and Paneer are prepared by splitting milk and pressing the milk solids.

The splitting is done using enzymes in the case of cheese and using sourlime in the case of paneer.

Paneer is fresh whereas Cheese is allowed to mature where some micro-organisms also play a part.

so basically if you boil the milk and add lemon juice, and once it splits get rid of the liquid you end up with paneer?

yes, boil milk, let it come to room temperature then add lemon juice. Once it splits... tie it in a moslin cloth to drain excess water. Paneer is ready... or easier to buy it from any desi shop... its also called as cottage cheese

thnx Daagh

Paneer makhani looks delicious..i came here through a search for paneer recipe..glad i found your blog...nice collection of recipes...

thanks Maheshwari :-)


I am regular visitor of your blog.. Every recipe is different.. I like almost all :) but not this one.. I tried this at home with curd and everything but it appears quite sour to me... Suggest something else than using only curd .. otherwise dish looks great..

oh... sorry to know that your dish turned out too sour may be because of the kind of yoghurt you used... we use greek style set yoghurt which is not too sour. May be you can try using a couple of table spoons of tomato puree...

Hey this looks so good.Might have tastes even better because i believe the best treat to eyes complimemt the tasty food too..Thanx for sharing
