Re: Indian paneer

Is that the Indian cheese?

There is an Indian market near Limmatplatz in central Zurich, but I can't remember if they sell paneer.

Re: Indian paneer

Best to buy it fresh at Migros. Ask for "Zigernatur" at the fresh cheese counter. It is much better than the frozen / imported variety available at Indian stores, and cheaper too.

Re: Indian paneer

Buy them at Agarwals as pointed by Svenca. The frozen ones don't taste that great.

Not too easy to form it into shapes, though.

Well the important part is after making paneer in ''cottage cheese/ricota form'
you have to Place a heavy weight(around 5kg) on top of the paneer(muslin cloth) for approx 30 min.
Open the cloth and cut paneer to desired size cubes.
only then it would 'bind' together for the paneer consistency.

Will share some pictures when I make it next time

Re: Indian paneer

in migros, buy 'serac'. its in the normal section where you would normally find other varieties of cheese.
PS: a friend tried few of the other varieties before finally he hit the right one. serac is the right one.
hope you enjoy your paneer butter masala

Here is a recipe from the Hiltl's cookbook, I have made it as yet, though I should........

1litre Bio milk
3 Tablespoons Apple Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Lemon juice
Bring Milk and lemon juice to boil, Add Vinegar, stir
Pour into a Muslin cloth, that is placed over a strainer.
Run Cold water through the mixture for 1 minute.
Pull the ends of the cloth together, straining excess water.
Hang up to drain for 30mins.

Re: Indian paneer

I buy my Paneer from Aggarwals. It's available in the refridgerated section as well, so you need not buy frozen, and it's perfectly fine.

If you wish to make your own, it's simple but the stuff from Aggarwals is good.

Re: Indian paneer

You can easily make your own and freeze it. so the next time you are rushed for time, and want a quick scrambled paneer or spinach paneer or whatever, you have your own ready to use stash in the freezer. easy. save your money for luxuries.

If you need muslin cloth, contact me offline. :-)

Re: Indian paneer

To make the paneer dish, just grate onion, capsicum (1 onion large and 1 medium capsicum) for 200gm of paneer.
Cube the paneer and then mix onion ,capsicum , salt , a pinch of sugar and redchilli powder.
Heat butter and add the mix, cover and cook in low-medium heat for 15 mins and paneer is ready.
