homemade paneer

i made cheese! wahoo! i was inspired by heart of light, and followed her recipe here.
it's so simple. here's how i did it:
ingredients: milk & lime juice (i added a smidge of hot sauce too, because i love it).

equipment: a big pot, a strainer, a cheesecloth (or, in my case, a thin dishcloth).

bring the milk to a boil on medium heat (this part took forever).

add lime juice and stir. wait for curds to rise.

pour everything into the cloth & strainer.

tie up the curds in the cloth, let the whey run out.

squeeze the cloth tighter, and suspend over the sink for half an hour.

unwrap the cheese.

keep it in the fridge for 2-3 hours to firm up. tadah!
