Making Indian Paneer at home

Paneer is fresh cheese made by curdling milk with lemon juice or yogurt. It's also very similar to traditional Lithuanian cottage cheese bu t Lithuanians make it by curdling milk with sour milk and it generally has softer texture. Anyway, both cheeses are absolutely delicious and now I'm ready to try even more Indian dishes.

What we need:

2 l whole milk
250 live yogurt

What we have to do:

1. Pour your milk in a big pot and bring it to boil.
2. When milk starts boiling, pour in your yogurt and stir for 5 minutes. The heat and acid will curdle the milk.
3. Put some cheese cloth or a clean thin kitchen towel on a bowl and drain the curd. Wash it with cold water and shape the cheese in the cloth. Put a heavy thing or a pot with water on the top and leave the cheese for 1 hour.
4. Remove cheese cloth and paneer is ready to be used in other dishes or just eaten on a slice of bread with some chilli and salt. Enjoy!

Receptas Lietuviskai - Paneer

Paneer - tai Indiskas baltasis suris, kuris labai jau panasus i Lietuviskaji. Zinoma Lietuviskasis suris daromas is rugpieno, kuris yra uzplikomas verdanciu pienu ( bent jau taip mano mama gamindavo), o paneer suris gaminamas is pieno ir trupucio jogurto. Kadangi karves neisigijau, todel suri dariau is parduotuveje pirkto pieno su uzrasu 'whole milk', t.y. nenugriebtas pienas ( nors kas ten zino) ir gyvu jogurtu ( live yogurt / doğal yogurt).

Reikia:

2 l pieno,
250ml gyvo jogurto

Gaminame:
1. I puoda supilame piena ir laukiame kol uzvirs.
2. Kai pradeda virti, sudeti jogurta ir nenustojant letai maisyti. Pamatysite, kad pienas pradeda trauktis ir atsiranda gumuliukai, bei isrugos.
3. Maisome kol susidaro aiskus varskes gumuliukai ir isrugos.
4. Ant kostuvo patiesiame svaru plona balta virtuvini ranksluostuka arba merles gera gabala, tada supilame visa susidariuse varske su isrugomis. Leidziame isrugom nuvarveti, dar karta su saltu vandeniu nuplauname varskes gumuliukus, ranksluosteli suspaudziame, kad isrugos gerai nuvarvetu. Surisame suri ir padedame ant lygaus pavirsiaus, ant surio uzdedame koki nors sunku daikta ( as dejau ta pati puoda, kuriame virinau piena su vandeniu. Palikti 1 valandai. O tada jau isimti is merles ar ranksluostuko ir gaminti gausybe indisku patiekalu arba papraciausiai valgome viena su trupuciu cili ir druska. Siaip suris gaunasi be druskos, todel pries spaudziant galite ideti druskos ar prieskoniu. Skanaus!
