How to Make Chilli Paneer Recipe at Home

To prepare chilli paneer - traditional Indian cheese - start bringing the milk slowly to a boil in a heavy-based pan, stirring.

Reduce the heat right down and add the lemon juice and salt.

Stir gently until the white curd starts to form. Continue to stir gently, being careful not to break up the lumps.

Remove from the heat.

Stir in the coriander and chilli flakes.

Pour the mixture through a colander lined with 4 layers of muslin.

Tie up the muslin, then squeeze out as much liquid as you can.

Hang the muslin bag over a bowl and let it continue to drip for about 1-1½ hours.

Place a heavy weight, such as a pan filled with water, on top of the wrapped chilli paneer cheese for 30 minutes.
