Paneer or cottage cheese is a wonderful ingredient in cooking. It is full of nutrients too. Homemade paneer is definitely better than the store bought ones. So here is how to make paneer (Cottage cheese) at home.
I came to know about cottage cheese, and that it could be made easily at home, from one of my school teachers, Miss Shyamala. She explained in detail the benefits of paneer and how curdled milk could be converted to nutrient rich paneer. I was amazed as to how something bad could be changed to something good and healthy. I made up my mind to give it a try. Not me actually, I gave Umma a chance to try it. I still remember the day when I explained the same things and the method as explained by Shyamala Ma’m, to Umma. And when Umma tried this and it came out well, I jumped out of joy.. It was a Eureka moment!! 🙂 Since then paneer holds a special place in my heart and tummy 😉
Talking about the benefits of paneer, it is endless. Obviously, it has to be, as it is a milk product. It is a rich source of protein.
Whay water, that we get as a biroduct while making paneer, is equally nutritious. Realising the health benefts of whey water, I have started using it while making roti dough. It has numerous good components of milk.
