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 :)

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Yes, this is the quintessential south Indian menu that has become widely popular world over for its rich taste, unique flavors, and nutritional boost! Well, this is exactly what inspires most of us north Indians to cook south Indian food. I  must admit I love Chettinad cuisine, Malayali food, and of course, Tamil recipes.

Savor any recipe bursting with coconut flavor and you would want to have it again and again. At least, this is my experience! South Indian food has been instrumental in making me a coconut lover. Don't believe?
