Homemade Paneer (Panir - Indian Cheese)

Paneer is a simple, mild-flavored Indian cheese. Once you make this, you will have a new appreciation for the Little Miss Muffet nursery rhyme, for you will know the meaning of curds and whey. More importantly, you will be able to enjoy lovely Indian dishes like Palak Paneer (spinach, cheese and spice curry), Mattar Paneer (green peas, tomatoes spices and paneer), and many more. OTHER PANEER RECIPES use lemon juice instead of yogurt, but the yield is smaller with that method. To go that route, use 3-4 tablespoons lemon juice instead of the 1 ½ cups yogurt called for. You could also use 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar diluted with 2 tablespoons water, adding this to the 6 cups of milk. TO AVOID SPILLS when the milk bubbles up, be sure to use a large, deep saucepan. From Nancie McDermott’s The Curry Book.
