Raw Paneer Curry Dip
1 gallon organic raw milk 2 cups fresh lemon juice 1 clove of garlic 1/4 bunch of parsley, minced 1 Tbsp. of curry powder 4 Tbsp. of olive oil or sesame oil. ¼ tsp. celtic sea salt 1. Heat quart of milk to a maximum of 104 degrees (a cow's body temperature). Stir constantly to prevent scorching. 2. Add lemon juice to milk and stir several times to mix thoroughly. 3. Once milk fully separates into a clear yellow liquid (whey) and white chunky substance (curds/cheese), remove from burner. If it doesn’t separate or separate all the way, add more lemon juice until it does. 4. Scoop and squeeze curds together with your hands until all or most of the curds stick together. 5. Pour whey/curd mixture through a fine-mesh strainer. 6. Squeeze the rest of the whey out of the curds with your hands. Set curds aside. Reserve whey for another use. See note. 7. Place garlic, parsley, curry, and oil in food processor. Blend for 10 seconds or until mixed evenly. 8. Add curds (cheese), salt and blend more until smooth but not runny. 9. Serve with pita or veggie sticks. NOTE: Whey is as good source of protein and is known to lubricate the joints and loosen the muscles. There are many uses for whey. Add raw honey and use as a natural sports drink, or store in a dark cabinet until it turns into vinegar and use for sauces and salad dressings. It can also be used as a “culture” for fermented vegetables or sour dough breads. Bullet Points, Key Things to Put in Article This is a healthy recipe because it uses raw/ unpasteurized milk. Raw dairy is dairy that has not been heated above 104 degrees, a cow’s maximum body temperature. Raw dairy is filled with pro-biotic bacteria, enzymes and most importantly lactase. Lactase is the same enzyme that our bodies produce as infants to digest lactose, a sugar present in mother’s milk. This enzyme disappears once we are weaned. When milk is pasteurized, this enzyme is destroyed leaving the difficult to digest lactose sugar behind. Many people who are lactose intolerant and have switched to non-dairy milks such as soy, rice or almond, are finding now that they can consume and even thrive on raw dairy.
