Protein Packed Paneer Recipe

June 27, 2021

The Paneer / Indian cottage cheese available in USA market is loaded with too much fat to my liking. And I love Paneer! Palak Paneer is one of my all time favorite dish.

As part of my fitness goals, 6 Packs Transformation, I was looking out to enjoy Paneer while keeping excellent protein nutrition profile. So I set out to make my own Paneer! Here’re the details.

My 20 mins modified process

Since I don’t have much time, this is my 20 mins process.

  1. Get non fat milk, empty into big container, bring it to boil while stirring gently
  2. Let it cool down for 2 mins
  3. Add vinegar / lemon juice while stirring slowly. Solid crumbles will start to form. Keep stirring for 5 mins
  4. Drain the water
  5. It’s ready!
