Make Your Own Paneer, with Just 2 Ingredients

Love paneer but tired of store-bought options? You can make this fresh cheese at home with just two simple ingredients.

Gather Your Ingredients

You'll need whole milk and fresh lemon juice to make delicious paneer at home.

Heat the Milk

Pour the milk into a pot and heat it over medium heat until it comes to a gentle boil

Add Lemon Juice

Stir in the lemon juice and reduce the heat. Continue stirring gently.

Curds and Whey

As the milk curdles, you'll see white curds separate from the greenish whey.

Strain the Curds

Line a strainer with cheesecloth and strain the curds, saving the whey for other uses if desired.

Rinse the Curds

Rinse the curds under cold water to remove any lemony taste and help them firm up.

Shape and Press

Gather the cheesecloth and shape the paneer into a block. Press with a heavy object for 1-2 hours.

Slice and Enjoy

Unwrap your homemade paneer, slice it into cubes, and use it in your favorite recipes.
