Home made Panner
Panner is nothing but an cheese prepared out of milk. Its good for health as it is made up of protein. I was eager to try making home made panner when i first came across about it in Google.
I tried preparing & found that home made ones are more spongy & fresh.
Follow the below steps to get health protein rich home made panners:
Boil a packet of milk, add lemon juice & stir with a spatula. Boil until it curdles & whey gets separated.
Switch off & after its cools down, filter out whey. Wash the separated curd & tie it to a cheese cloth. Keep under an heavy object for 6 hours & our panners are ready. Cut it into small square blocks & refridgerate it for 4 to 5 days.. Then use when required.
