Paneer – Indian Cheese

Paneer is a homemade Indian cheese which has many applications from side dishes to chat to sweets. Paneer by itself has lot of taste and flavor of milk. Paneer can be made in advance and stored in refrigerator for around 3 –4 days. Although fresh paneer tastes best, stored paneer is close and much better than store bought ones. It is advisable to store paneer in submerged in water and change the water every day. This will give a better shelf life. Paneer can be made very quickly and takes less than 90 minutes from start to finish being ready. 1 liter 2% milk yielded around 160 grams of paneer. You can use lemon juice, vinegar or citric acid to break the milk. But when curd or whey is used, you get the maximum quantity of paneer. You could also add spices to the paneer while curdling and you get the spiced paneer. Once I have added Red chili flakes and the paneer was so cute with the little red dots from the flakes.

Ghee / Nei / Clarified Butter

A key ingredient in many recipes to help it be elevated to the next level in taste and flavor is GHEE!! Ghee or Clarified butter originated in India and is part of many delicious recipes like Indian Sweets, some gravies, some Indian Breads etc. Ghee also plays a part in pooja, homam and fire sacrifices. A great advantage of ghee is its shelf life.. Ghee can be stored in room temperature for many months. It needs to be stored in an airtight container to have that long shelf life. Also make sure to use a moisture free spoon and dirt free spoon every time. Ghee is used in many homes to light vilakku (deepam).
