  6. Once the milk is curdled switch off the flame, add 1 cup of cold water in it and keep covered for 15 minutes.
  7. Pour curdled milk into muslin cloth.
  8. Wash it under running water so the citric flavour goes, if there is any.
  9. Now squeeze the muslin cloth and tie it above the sink for about 15 minutes so that the whey gets drained easily. Gently squeeze bag. Make sure that all the whey has drained.
  10. Place chenna ( paneer) on a plain working surface and knead with the heal of the hand til the grains disappear and chenna becomes soft and creamy.
