    24. Hi, can some here who has tried this recipe tell me the process of "washing the paneer"-Wash the paneer with fresh water to wash away the sourness of the lemon.
      Do they mean just keep the cloth under running water to get rid of sour ??

      ReplyDelete
    25. Yes, take a cloth and pour the curdled milk in it. Wash it well in the running cold water under the tap to remove the sourness.
