Ingredients
Water : 1/4 cup
White Vinegar : 3 tbsp
Full Cream Milk : 1 lt
Salt : 1/3 tsp
Method
• Add milk to a heavy bottom pan, and bring it to boil. Keep stirring occasionally.
• Let milk rise and turn off the flame.
• Dilute vinegar in water and add it to milk, in three batches. Keep stirring, in order to separate paneer from whey.
• Take a strainer, place a cheese cloth or muslin cloth on it. Strain paneer.
• Do not squeeze paneer. Immediately, rinse paneer with fresh water to remove sour taste and to stop it from further cooking.
• Let paneer strain for 15 minutes.
• Do not throw away whey, it is full of nutrients. You can use it later to knead dough or add it to your vegetable gravy for sabzi.
• In a blender, add paneer, salt and 3 tbsp whey. Blend it well, till paneer becomes creamy.
• Transfer Cream Cheese to an air tight container and allow it to cool before keeping it in refrigerator.
• You can use this Cream Cheese for a week.
• Around 220 gms of Cream Cheese is made from this recipe, if you would buy the same quantity from market, it would cost you 250₹-550₹ approximately.
