  7. Paneer Cheese You can substitute farmer's cheese if you do not want to make your own paneer.
  8. Ingredients
  9. 1/2 gallon of lowfat milk 2-3 Tbsp lemon juice
  10. Preparation
  11. Put the lowfat milk in a stainless steel pot and start boiling it. It's best if you stir it with a wooden sppon. You must stir it regularly, to make sure it doesn't burn (if it burns, it will be absolutely unusable).
  12. Once the lowfat milk is thoroughly boiling, remove the heat and add in the lemon juice. The lowfat milk starts curdling right now. Have another pot ready. Also, you'll need a strainer covered with a cheesecloth. Scoop the curds and whey into the strainer, dripping the liquids into the pot. The curds should all have remained in the cheesecloth. Wrap the cheesecloth so as to cover the curds completely. Press the cheesecloth a little bit with your hands or possibly a spoon. The point is to squeeze every last bit of whey out of the paneer.
  13. Makes 1 block of paneer cheese.
