Paneer is something which is like by most of us.Paneer is the most versatile ingredient in our subji and gravy recipes. Now a days, Malai paneer is easily available at shops but still homemade has its own freshness. I always prefer homemade versions as i have told many times. This malai paneer is very easy to make and it gives perfect result.

I have tried malai paneer recipe several times a home.After trying many times at home, I noticed apart from milk, Amount of lemon juice is also important to make it perfect. If your juice amount is increase then it will give bitter taste.

Also, diwali is coming i think you guys have already started to plan a menu. Hope this recipe will help you.
