Recipe for Home made Malai Paneer
Milk 1 litre
Cream 100 ml
Vinegar 2 - 3 tbsp

Gradually add vinegar and stir, milk will start curdling.
Once milk is curdled, take it off the stove and immediately add ice cold water.
Leave it for 2 to 3 minutes.
Line the strainer with muslin or cheese cloth.
Strain the curdled milk and squeeze to drain the water.
Place the squeezed curdled milk with the cheese cloth on top of the colander.
Cover the cheese cloth with another flat bottom plate. Put some heavy weight on the top plate.
Leave it for 3 to 4 hours.
Whey will be collected in the bottom plate.
Your soft, silky and smooth malai paneer is waiting in the cheese cloth for you to uncover it….!!!
