I’m making cheese!

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.

    your cheese making caught my attention!!! Sorry to hear the 1st attempt was not fab, but please let me know how the 2nd try goes. I often make paneer and have a good recipe if you need one 🙂 The issue I had was finding a pot… that I could put the paneer wrapped in cheese cloth in to be pressed over night! Needless to say all worked out in the end.

    As you can see, the second attempt was also made of fail. So yes please, share your recipe and I’ll give it a go. 🙂

    Don’t give up 🙂 I will look it up this weekend and send you the recipe. Three times lucky as they say!
