Note 2 lts of buffalo milk will give approx 450gms of paneer

For making fresh paneer boil milk. Dilute vinegar with a dash of water and add to the boiling milk. Once it curdles turn off the heat and strain the fresh cheese through a muslin cloth. Add some cold water on to the cheese(paneer) to cool it off and also to remove any traces of vinegar.

Squeeze and keep aside.

Heat a fresh pan and add oil and butter. Sprinkle cumin and once it pops add garlic, ginger and green chilli. Give it a stir and cook for 30 secs and add the chopped onions. Cook onion for 2mins, we don’t have to brown them.

Sprinkle turmeric, chilli powder and coriander powder. Stir and add in tomatoes along with some salt to taste.

Cook tomatoes for 2 mins and then add the fresh paneer and cook them for 5mins. Sprinkle with kasoori methi powder and freshly chopped coriander and remove. Serve hot with flat breads.
