OPOS Paneer Recipe: How To Make Instant Cottage Cheese, Paneer Bhurji


It's the OPOS magic that continues to bewitch me every day. Take my word for it - you will never be disappointed if you try out the OPOS paneer recipe. However, before starting with any OPOS recipes, it's important to learn the OPOS basics. Most importantly, you have got to standardize your pressure cooker so that it gives you the best results in an instant. Think of 5-min paneer or say 7-min rasogollah! What about 5-minute OPOS biryani? Of course, how could we miss the instant OPOS Mysore Pak? Yes, how can I forget to talk about the 5-min OPOS moong halwa and 5-min OPOS ghee?  Well, sound like music to your ears, right?

So are you ready to do this for yourself, your present family, and your future generations, not to mention, your guests and followers?

I am in for this already.

So, let's get started with the simplest, quickest, instant paneer recipes - say, OPOS paneer!
one pot one shot instant paneer in 5mins


Ingredients for Making Instant Paneer

500-ml milk (I use skimmed milk as well- you may use either skimmed or cow's milk or full-fat milk) - for a 3-liter PC, you can use up to 1 liter milk
1/4th cup- curd (for 1-liter milk, you may want to use 1/2 cup curd)
1 tsp- vinegar or lime juice (optional)

Procedure: How To Make OPOS Paneer in 5 mins

You need a 2 or 3-liter pressure cooker for this. No OPOS recipes should be tried in any cooker of a bigger capacity, please.
Take a 2 or 3-liter pressure cooker.
Add milk to it.
Next, pour in curd.
Immediately add lime juice or vinegar. I usually do not add this.
Cover with lid and weight on.
Cook on high for 2 whistles.
Immediately release pressure.
Open the cooker to see magic! Yes, the OPOS paneer magic is ready to bewitch you.
Remove and strain using a tea strainer or any other siever. Wash the paneer.
Press the paneer with a heavyweight. I kept it in a big strainer and pressed it with chakli (my roti rolling base).
Keep it pressed for at least 30-45 mins.
Cut OPOS paneer into pieces and enjoy your meals.
Turn instant paneer into rasogollah or rasmalai or any meal.
Enjoy OPOS magic in your kitchen!

Isn't one pot one shot easy? If you try out the one pot one shot technique, you will never look back!
Easy, quick, and colorful :)

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi
2 tbsp- roasted quinoa powdered (roasted quinoa adds a nutty flavor to the recipe - substitute with almond powder if you do not h…

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
