And yes, I did it! :) I made my own paneer. Paneer is, for those who don't know it, an indian cheese.

And I was so exited that after that I made a dish out of paneer and invited my friends for dinner. :) The recipe will be on the blog soon.

I found the recipe here: How to make paneer. It's really well written, 'cause it illustrates everything from step to step.

1,5 l whole milk
lemon juice from 1 lemon

Boil the milk and when it starts boling add the lemon juice and mix it. The milk will start to curdle, but if it doesn't want to curdle, add after a few minutes a little bit of vinegar and continue to stir. After a few minutes put it away to cool a little bit. Put a muslin cloth on a bowl. I didn't have it, so I used a cotton cloth and it was ok. Pass everything through the cloth. The solid parts will remain on the cloth. Wrap the cloth and run cold water through it. Then squeeze it to remove all the liquid parts. Wrap it tight and put something heavy on the top. Leave it for 30 or 40 minutes. After that cut it in cubes and you have your own paneer.
