Favorite Tip #35: Paneer

Favorite Tip #35:

This tip comes from “Bal’s Quick and Healthy Indian” by Bal Arneson. ( )

To make paneer, also known as buttermilk cheese, take two cups of milk and bring it just to a boil. Add in one cup of buttermilk and stir until the curds form. Remove from the heat and strain through a cheesecloth-lined sieve for about twenty minutes in the refrigerator. Discard the liquid. If you like, you can add one-two teaspoons of your favorite herbs and spices when you add the buttermilk.

I tried this recipe with two percent milk and lowfat buttermilk. And it actually worked!




  1. Interesting! I didn’t know I could make it myself. Thanks!

    • You’re very welcome, Tam. It was surprisingly easy. Cheers, Ashley
