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 :)

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.
