    Paneer is a simple cheese without any additives. My method is to use three litres of skim milk, heat to 120F in a double boiler to control the temperature and to prevent burning of the bottom of the pot if set directly on the heat. After 120F is reached remove the heat, and put in a large tablespoon of Ascorbic Acid powder, available from a Pharmacy. I buy 500 ml, which lasts a long time.. Immediately upon dropping the ascorbic acid and stirring there appear instant curd, almost a large blob. Drain in a colander with cold water and use as desired.A good replacement for commercial cottage cheese, but of a more rubbery texture.The making takes about 15 or less minutes.

    I just made some 2 weeks ago. I press mine into a block so I can cut it to add to curries. It is really good and very easy.

    I just use it as is. Surprising how much one an eat when nibbling at the chunk. It is easy to make into any shape when first processed. I just don't bother.
