Paneer (cottage cheese)

Making your own paneer is not very hard, but should be done with care (and a lot of stirring! ;)...

If you want to use yogurt whey rather than (more commonly used) citric acid, put yogurt in a large coffee filter or a piece of cheesecloth and leave to drip for a night or so, the stuff that drips out is great (even better than citric acid if you ask me, since it tastes less sour) to make cheese curdle.
