4.3 stars from 3 ratings of Home made Panner and Naan

Many of us doesn't know to to make easy food items like Paneer, Naan etc. Everyone thinks that it is difficult to make at home,but it is quite easy to make these without adding any artificial substances that are used at the restaurants.

Paneer can be made by two methods:

  • Adding lime juice or vinegar to boiling milk.
  • Adding melted curd to boiling milk.

Naan can be made by adding with or without yeast.

I think this hub will help to make Paneer and Naan at home.......



  • 1litre Milk
  • 1/4 cup Curd/lemon juice
  • 3-4 ns Ice cubes
  • 1/2tspn Flour/maida, optional

How to prepare?

  1. First thing is to Boil milk in a vessel and add beaten curd to the milk. Continue boil until the water getting separated completely.
  2. After that take it from the stove and add ice cubes to it.
  3. Now take a cloth and remove/drain the water completely in order to separate the paneer.
  4. In order to remove remaining water put a weight on the cloth/ Hang the cloth in which the paneer is taken for 2-3 hours.
  5. Take this paneer out from the cloth and flatten it. Then place this for setting.You can add little flour to it to prevent the panner from crumbling.
  6. Finally cut into pieces using a knife and use with in 3 days by keeping in freezer.
