Home Made Paneer

We all like paneer .I always used store - bought.I wanted to try at home using double cream .The Paneer was soft and not dense.You get a nice smell because we use curd.They are soft like pillows.You all would have tried making paneer using lime,try' with curd it is absolute winner,no need to wash,just curdle ,drain and freeze them. I used the left over whey water to make chappathi,it was so soft.I used that day itself.We all liked it ,do try it ,you will definitely like it.
