It's clay. No, it's puddy. No, it's...
You may be wondering what this big, white lump of somethin' is. Well, I wouldn't be lying if I told you it was cheese! Actually, it is homemade paneer.
Paneer!? What in the world is paneer? And why is it homemade? I wondered the same thing. It is an indian cheese (more like cottage cheese, I believe). I actually saw the recipe here and thought I'd give it a try.
I am not a cheese maker by any means, but this was SO simple. Milk and vinegar...in 5 minutes. The flavor is...well, boring. However, I am trying to find a good recipe to use it it. Wish me luck!
Maybe next time I'll add some herbs (or would that be wrong to change up traditional paneer?).
