  1. Thank you so much Sanjiv ji your method of cooking is best and easy one, being a Bengali I used to add chhena as in cube shapes but your’s one is amazing grated chhena… 😍❤👍🙏😇

    1. Paneer and chhena, both are made using the same method. The only difference is chhena has its moisture retained whereas paneer is set to get a firm block. You can coagulate milk using lemon juice, vinegar or citric acid. Wash it thoroughly to get rid of the sour flavor.
