This recipe turned out very well. It is very tasty, just like the restaurant variety. It was easy to make and the directions are very clear. This cheese is fun to make, my children thought it was interesting that I was making cheese. I will do this again!

this was my husband's and my fun project for the night. since this was our first attempt, we regarded it as a trial so i halved the recipe. it's a very instructive recipe with lucid directions easy enough for a novice to follow. we did the math and figured it makes economical sense, as this is much cheaper than store-bought paneer for us. having said that, the texture is not as smooth as the storebought one - this is a more crumbly. my first instinct was that it might be more suited to paneer burji (scrambled paneer) or kofta, but after some time with a weight over it, it did seem to smoothen - i hope it holds its shape when it is being fried. tomorrow i will try the paneer in a curry...fingers crossed (edited to add: refrigerated overnight, it firmed up beautifully, not crumbly at all, and tasted fresher and creamy than its readymade counterpart. will only be using homemade paneer from now on)

I have been wanting to make paneer for a while, and this was so simple and fun to make. The end product was smooth and firm. The only problem is that I can't decide what I want to use it for! Palak Paneer, Gulab Jamun....

Wow, this is so tasty. Very easy to make too. Mine came out very creamy after kneading and letting it sit overnight in the refrigerator. I tried having this as is and also fried. The texture is very different when fried in oil - very airy and light while they are still hot. Thank you for posting this great recipe.

This is really good, very similar to restaurant paneer! Mine did not get very solid, and I had a hard time pressing it. But, that was my fault and not the recipes. Thanks for the yummy paneer recipe!

This was easy! I have tried a few other paneer recipes where the cheese just did not turn out for me. Looks like the slow simmer after adding the lemon juice/vinegar was the key (other recipes instructed to remove from heat immediately after adding lemon juice). I skipped the blending and went straight to the draining instructions. I'm going to divide and freeze the block I just made to use as needed in other recipes. Thanks!

This was very good and so easy to make! I added some yellow food coloring to make saffron-colored paneer to use in Fragrant Paneer Rice, and it was lovely. I also made rasmalai, which was WONDERFUL!
