How to make soft paneer at home

The pasterurized milk that I use has 4% fat and gives me soft, delicious paneer cubes.

Boil 1 liter of milk. Stir in 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice or 2 tbsp of curd.

Keep stirring. If the milk still does not curdle fully, which often is the case with psteruized milk, add 1 tbsp more of vinegar or lime juice and 2 more tbsp of curd (but add 1 tbsp at a time)

The milk should curdle easily. Once the chenna separates from the milky water, known as whey, it's time to strain it using a cotton cloth, just like my nani used to do.

Rinse the homemade paneer with cold water to remove any smell of vinegar. If you make chenna with curd, you may or may not wash it. 

Immediately press the chenna under heavy weight so that any excess moisture is released.  

After an hour, you may shift it to the fridge and remove any whey that separates from paneer after pressing it under weight.

Cut homemade paneer into pieces and enjoy an array of delicious paneer recipes at home. I hope you liked the easy paneer making recipe. If you did, give Ravneet Bhalla a thumbs up and share your favorite paneer recipe in comments. Take care.

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body. Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking. Remove foam from top to reduce gassy elements from millets.  How long should millet be soaked before cooking? Soaking the millets overnight is a safe practice. Soaking breaks down the phytic acid in millets or for that matter grains and nuts. Phytic acid hinders the absorption of minerals and nutrients in food, including calcium, iron, and zinc. How? Phytates bind to minerals and nutrients and make their absorption difficult in the gut. Your tummy finds it tough to digest millets in that case. So soaking millets and draining off that soaked water makes it easier on your tummy.  Are millets safe for thyroid? Does
