Ingredients you need for making Paneer

How to Prepare Paneer at Home?
You have to boil two cups of milk in the saucepan. Slowly bring the milk to a boil, keep stirring constantly, so that the milk doesn't boil over or stick at the bottom.
Switch the burner off once the milk starts boiling but leave the saucepan on the burner.
Add 4 teaspoons vinegar to the boiling milk, that the milk curdles and turn into curds and whey.
Stir well with spoon and let it remain the stove for 5-10 minutes.
Strain the curds and whey through cheesecloth or a handkerchief to be able to separate the curds from the whey.
Press the cheese using the cloth to get most of the moisture out.
Open the cloth and add a pinch of salt if preferred. Actually salt is not needed.
Mix and then press again to remove any extra moisture.
Put in the cheese in to a mould or just leave it just like that.
Refrigerate for a while before using.
