Homemade paneer/cottage cheese recipe video||easy step by step guide

Paneer is a fresh cheese common in the Indian Subcontinent.It is an unaged, non-melting cheese made by curdling milk with a vegetable-derived acid, such as lemon juice, yoghurt or vinegar. Its acid-set form (cheese curd or acid-set cottage cheese) is called chhena.

Paneer/Cottage cheese is a super soft cheese with which you can make your favourite curry.

I have made this cheese at home to have a fresh, adulteration free preparation.

I’ve made this cheese with lime juice before but using yoghurt it gives that creamy and soft texture. To make it a bit tarty I’ve added the black salt.


  • 4 cups/800 ml whole milk
  • 2 tbs beaten yoghurt
  • 1 pinch black salt


  • Pour 4 cups of whole milk in a heavy bottom pan
  • Bring it to boil
  • Add the beaten yoghurt
  • Mix it well
  • You can see the milk started curdling
  • Then water and cheese will be separated
  • Take a clean cloth
  • Place it on the strainer
  • Pour the cheese over the cloth
  • Cover with cloth and clean under cold water
  • Drain excessss water
  • Be careful it releases steam
  • Now place over a plate
  • Press with a heavy bowl to give shape
  • Now press with another plate and secure the top with heavy weight
  • Leave it for 2-3 hours
  • Now remove the cover
  • You get your perfect solid cottage cheese/paneer bar
