I like this blog and I like this recipe. Paneer acts kind-of like tofu in recipes – sucks up the gravy/sauce and adds a yummdiddly “meatiness” to vego dishes. If you make your own yoghurt you can make your own paneer. On second thought – paneer is EASIER than yoghurt, give it a go. I really like the fact that making my own yoghurt and paneer gives me total control over what goes in it – I can choose the milk, I can choose the culture (in the case of yoghurt) and etc. You might agree, when it’s simple to make, very delicious and you have 100% control, there’s a good and satisfying feeling. You’ll like the $$$ you save too.


We get paneer- indian cottage cheese everywhere but trust me when I say, home made paneer is the best one! I  prepare paneer frequently from last 4 to 5 years.(finally I have clicked some pictures for paneer) I have followed the same method or recipe. I either use yogurt or lemon juice, depending on their availability. Step by step pictures are required here and here goes the recipe,


1.2 litres whole milk (full cream milk)

4 tbsp lemon juice or 3-4 tbsp yogurt.

Other things

A thin , white cotton or muslin cloth

A metal strainer

A heavy weight


  • Bring the milk to boil. While boiling milk, add lemon juice or yogurt slowly with one hand while stirring the milk with other hand.


  • Soon the milk will be curdled, the water will be separated and you will see milk solids. Now put off the heat.

  1. I’ve been trying to find an e-mail address for you and happened on this post. I wanted to let you know how nice it is to see your name in blogland again. Hope everything is going well.

    1. Hello Lillian and happy new year! It’s been a while I know…I have made the decision to come back to blogging after a bit of a crisis of confidence – silly, I know but I kept looking at all these other food blogs with their beautiful, stylised photography and faultless layout and I’m afraid I juat gave up. How ridiculous is that? Anyway, sweetrosie is back, determined to be herself, bad photographs and all 🙂 Thank you for your lovely message, I have continued to follow your blog with interest and fond thoughts.

      1. Personally, I prefer the blogs that are more personal and don’t look like a magazine article. I like a visit to a blog to be like walking in the back door of my neighbor’s house and finding her in the middle of making some delicious dish or sewing a beautiful quilt and letting me watch for awhile.

        I always liked your photos and in addition, you have a flair for writing which a lot of bloggers lack. Hope to be seeing some posts from you soon.

      2. That is such a lovely reply and beautifully put. I love the way you’ve put such a perfect perspective on blogging and I agree 100% – so, I’m with you Lillian and here’s to a blog-filled 2013!
