How to Soften Refrigerated Paneer | Cooking Hack

Hello my beautiful people! 😍
I hope you all are in great health. Paneer Masala, Shahi Paneer, Kadai Paneer, the dishes themselves sounds mouth watering. Guess what is common in all? Yes you are right its Paneer, also called as Cottage Cheese. Today I am sharing a helpful tip which will enhance the softness and taste of Paneer (Cottage Cheese) dishes.


How to Soften Refrigerated Paneer

We buy Paneer from the market and most of the time we need to store it for some days in the refrigerator. This makes Paneer hard and if we use it in our dishes then we don't get the yummy softness of the Paneer.

Step 1.  Take a bowl of water and microwave it for a minute.
Step 2.  Take out refrigerated Paneer(Cottage Cheese) and cut them into cubes.
Step 3.  Immerse the cubes into warm water from Step 1 for 5 minutes.
Step 4.  Drain out water and take out Paneer(Cottage Cheese) cubes. 

Soft Paneer(Cottage Cheese) is ready to use now.
If you don't have microwave, just use gas to boil water and immerse Paneer(Cottage Cheese) into the water for 2 minutes and then remove it.

Note :-  Don't put Paneer for more time in water or very hot water than required thinking that it will get more soften. It will only make the Paneer over soft and will start breaking when we put in the gravy.
