Today I am making paneer, fresh Indian cheese. I’ve never made it before and was following Madhur Jaffrey’s recipe but the stern, usually reliable mistress of Indian cookery has let me down a little. Let’s just say there’s been an aborted curdling attempt and some swearing.
But I didn’t give up and the second attempt (in which I actually used my brain instead of slavishly following a recipe) is going well so far.
Tune in tomorrow for the finished result and a successful recipe.
