- Serves 4
We have started a tradition in our family that we will celebrate the start of a new week with a grand Meatless Mondays feast. I love creating tasty vegetarian recipes which my family of three carnivore males could sink there teeth into! Homemade Paneer is so easy and only has two ingredients. I spiced up the Paneer with a Moroccan Chermoula Sauce! —onetribegourmet

fresh lemon juice
- Moroccan Chermoula Sauce
garlic cloves, crushed

fresh red chile,seeded, crushed or finely chopped

- METHOD FOR HOMEMADE PANEER~ Place a colander lined with cheesecloth over a large bowl. In a large heavy non stick pot, boil the milk on a medium heat. Add the lemon juice. Curd will start to form. Drain the curd mixture in the colander/cheesecloth
- Rinse the curd briefly under slow-running water to remove the lemon taste. Gather the edges together, squeeze the excess water, then knot together the cheesecloth and let it sit in the colander . Let it sit for 20 minutes.
- To make the cheese dense for cutting into cubes; place a heavy object over the paneer for about an hour. Cut into bite size one inch square pieces for Kabobs.

Hi I'm Sara and I love the art of food & travel. I have a blog called One Tribe Gourmet, where I share my passion for global cuisine and my travel adventures around the world. I have always felt that food is the most common denominator that crosses all boundaries and brings people together. The ritual of “Breaking Bread” in every culture is a special bonding experience. Personally I love to experience different cultures through there cuisines! My goal here is to encourage an individual who is interested in learning different global cuisine yet is a bit intimidated by it. I am here to help you, all you have to do is open your heart!!!
