How to make paneer at home (easy method)

How to make paneer at home (easy method)

Why to go for ready made paneers available in supermarkets when we can easily prepare healthy and fresh paneer at home within minutes. I got some tips for preparing fresh paneer at home from my friend who just finished her PG in Home science..Here I'm sharing those tips with you :)


  • Milk : 1 litre
  • Lemon juice : 1 tblspn
  • Salt : 1/4 tspn


  • Heat the milk .Once it starts boiling, keep the stove in simmer mode and add lemon juice. Stir it well. Now add salt too. When the milk curdles completely, switch off the flame.

  • Allow the milk to cool and then sieve it. You can squeeze the sieve with hand for easy separation of the whey. You can even press with a spoon. (I skipped the usual hanging part.) Put it in a muslin cloth. I used a thin bath towel.

  • Cover it well and keep it in a plate. Put another plate of same size on top of it and then keep a weight on it. I used my pressure cooker filled with water :) 

  • After one hour take out your paneer and cut it into desired shapes.


  • You can also use vinegar or curd instead of lemon juice.(I have never tried that version)
