In an older post I have shared a recipe for making ricotta cheese. Paneer or some call it Indian Cottage Cheese, tastes almost the same as ricotta. It is a straightforward recipe, and hardly takes time, let’s learn how to make Paneer.
I believe this cheese holds better than ricotta, Ricotta cheese is softer in texture than Paneer, only because Paneer is drained well from whey.
But in general there is nothing you can do with ricotta that you can’t do with Paneer.
The first time I saw this cheese, I thought it’s Tofu. Now, I know that many like to eat Tofu, but I just can’t develop a taste for it!
What I like about Paneer is, when it’s fried, it’s crunchy from outside, creamy and rich from the inside.
OK, here is the recipe.
