Home made Paneer

You can make excellent paneer at home without being overboard. It is very simple you could make it while preparing the dinner just make sure you keep an eye on the boiling milk. I made it for the third time now using the same process and it was soft and tender every time. If you have any milk that is nearing expiry date this is the best way to use it.




Recipe

Ingredients
Makes 250grms of Paneer 
Milk- 1/2 gallon ( 2.4 liters) (I used half and half milk)
Lemon juice-5tbsp
Cheese cloth or any fresh cloth to filter



Method
Boil milk in a thick bottom pan (I used pressure cooker without lid). Simmer when it starts to boil and add 2tbsp of lemon juice and keep stirring, you should see the solid fat that is getting separated from the liquid. After two minutes keep adding the lemon juice little by little until you see pale yellow liquid with floating white  fat and do not forget to keep stirring while adding the lemon juice. You can also add white Vinegar or apple cider vinegar instead of lemon juice or you can use the combination of both. Now filter the fat on to a cheese cloth and take the paneer in to a bowl when it is cooled. Also make sure you squeeze entire water out of paneer. Now kneed the paner like a dough and make it like a ball and shape it like a block on a cheese cloth. Fill a heavy pot with water and place it for 3hrs on a paneer warped in a cheese cloth. After 3hrs firm paneer will be ready and you can cut them in to small blocks or store it as it is in the deep freezer. It will stay good for 30days.

Dhokla with the readymade flour available in the market

Dhokla is one of the dish I always wanted to try, this time I bought some ready made dokla flour form the "Patel brothers" one of the Indian grocery store in our near by area. The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

I feel so dumb sometimes, because I bought dokla flour but forgot the fact that I do not have dokla plates. If your case is same like me, give me "high-5"!! No problem you can use the idli plates instead. Problem solved!  Now coming to the recipe.

Ingredients:
Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
