How To Make Instant Paneer, Cottage Cheese, Paneer Bhurji

It's the instant cooking magic that continues to bewitch me every day. Take my word for it - you will never be disappointed if you try out the paneer recipe.  Think of 5-min paneer or say 7-min rasogollah! What about 5-minute biryani? Of course, how could we miss the instant Mysore Pak? Yes, how can I forget to talk about the 5-min moong halwa and 5-min ghee?  Well, sound like music to your ears, right?


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!

Instant Ghee From Homemade Butter: How To Make Clarified Butter in 5 Mins

Yes, this post is all about instant ghee! Does the idea of instant ghee impress you?

Ever experienced a feeling that your heart is in the mouth, especially while cooking? Or have you ever felt a feeling of restlessness to open a pressure cooker immediately to see the end product of your culinary experiment?


My culinary journey got a big star today- well, what decorated my journey was not a cookie experiment, but an instant ghee recipe. Yes, you have heard me right. I usually do not use ghee frequently, but I make homemade ghee (clarified butter) every week from the cream that settles on top of boiled cow's milk every day. This ghee is then used for puja and of course for a few cooking experiments. Yes, I love ghee, but do not indulge in it nowadays, because it is loaded with saturated fat and trans fat. Do you know it raises the risk of triglycerides in your body?

Enough of gheephobia!!

But this post is not about my fear of loading my body with saturated fat, but about quick ghee…
