Music and magic it is!

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, quick 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 Paneer in 5 mins

You need a 2 or 3-liter pressure cooker for this. No instant 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 instant 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 paneer into pieces and enjoy your meals.
Turn instant paneer into rasogollah or rasmalai or any meal.

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 :)
