Learn how to make paneer like my grandmother used to! This recipe was taught to me by my grandmother, Chaiji. We will start with milk and end up with cheese. I will also show you how to incorporate it into a dish and fry it.
I will teach you both ways to make paneer, the countryside way (which takes a lot longer) and the more modern approach. Once you leave, you will have the tools to make fresh cheese and a better understanding of various ways to do it.
This course will be the first in a series of how to make various indian dishes that will culminate with the knowledge of how to make a full northern Indian meal.
I will make a traditional dish beforehand so that we can enjoy the cheese that we made in a proper dish once we're done. \ Beverages will be provided.
Bring a small container for leftovers if you want to take some home.
I have lived in San Francisco for 8 years after 6 years on the east coast. \ I learned to cook at a very young age though the oral tradition, which is typical of indian cooking. I was lucky enough to have my grandmother, mother and aunts all chime in with their favorite ways of preparing many of the dishes I learned. I also love cooking any type of seafood, with a specialty in shellfish.
