If you use a cupful of home-made curds with a teaspoonful of vinegar mixed in it, in the place of lemon juice, your paneer will turn out much softer and creamier. The milk need not even be full cream milk. I use cow's milk, skimmed, and it still makes excellent paneer using this method.

About

Paneer is the most common South Asian and Persian cheese. It is an un-aged, non-melting farmer cheese made by curdling heated milk with lemon juice or other food acid.

Making paneer at home is easy. Try it at home for pure and fresh Indian cottage cheese.
