Chicken Lasagna from scratch – Indian Masala- My Style

IMG_0667

What I love about this lasagna is making homemade noodles.  It is much easier than it seems and you don’t even need a pasta machine.

This recipe is for a general pasta noodle, so it can be used to make ravioli as well.

This recipe tastes very Indian masala like 😀 (I sometimes use the butter chicken sauce for layering )

Super easy and very filling dish that is very very versatile. Add or subtract veggies or meat according to your choice or availability and it will taste awesome always.

Add Salsa or bechamel sauce or your favorite homemade sauce and own this recipe, make it yours. Nom nom nom…..

Paneer Butter Masala |Cottage cheese in gravy

Paneer or Cottage cheese is a good source of proteins, calcium, vitamin A and Vitamin B. It is super healthy and nutritious.

Best part is Paneer can be made at home from scratch –

The process starts with curdling milk. This is done by adding an acidic substance like lime juice or vinegar to warm milk.

When the acidity of the milk increases, curds of casein protein separate from the whey, the liquid part of the milk. Add more water to lessen the vinegary taste.

Now, filter this curdled milk with a muslin cloth/cheese cloth and try to remove all the water/moisture. Take the cloth with the cheese inside and press it with both hands, some more water will be released. Keep the tied cheese below a heavy pan or a heavy kitchen object and leave for some time. After sometime the cheese can be cut into pieces and used.
