Here is, as requested by les Baerts, a quick update regarding the paneer Karsten made during the weekend. Yesterday, he used it to prepare a Paneer Tikka Masala. It was, as usual, a typical Karsten dish: total chaos in the kitchen, quick moment of panic as soon as the first things started to sizzle in the pan and an absolutely delicious meal in the end.
Regarding the cheese: it turned out to taste very good, yet the texture needs to be improved next time. I guess we didn’t compress it long enough, so it partly desolved into small crumbs again while marinating and frying. Still, as it was our first self-made cheese I think Karsten can be proud of himself!
Since the little cheese crumbs didn’t look as delicious on the picture as they were in real life (the differences between the pictures in the cook book and the appearance of the actual dish could fill a whole book…) I’ll leave it up to your imagination.
I did, however, take a picture of the kitchen while my dear husband was cooking, and one ten minutes later after I gave him a hand while he was having his sizzling-panic-moment…just couldn’t help it 🙂
