furthermore, i would like to highlight some more tips, suggestions and variations to homemade cheese recipe. firstly, i would like to heavily emphasize on the timing and temperatures used in this recipe. you need to follow the exact timing and temperature to get the proper texture of cheese. otherwise, it may easily turn to paneer. secondly, the milk has to be full cream with 4% of fat or more. you may need to scan through the ingredients section and see the fat percentage in it. lastly, the quantity of vinegar might have to be increased depending upon the quality of milk. when i make paneer, i use a quarter cup of vinegar to spoil the milk. as the fat percentage increases, you may need more vinegar to spoil it. hence do not panic if it does not spoil completely and add more vinegar to it. also, if you have access to rennet or citric acid, you should be good using it. both rennet and citric acid give more thickness and elasticity to the cheese.
