First, last week I home made my own paneer, which is cheese. It was surprisingly easy to make, but a half gallon of milk only creates about a cup - a cup and a half of cheese, depending on the quality of milk you use. When they say get whole milk, I recommend whole milk and nice milk, like organic or at least more natural milk. It is more thick and creates more cheese. This recipe I found on The Kitchn was a great help!
Below is my paneer as I'm pan frying it.
