Living on a buffalo farm, Mitch Humphries milks approximately 150 buffaloes twice a day. Here he shares a recipe using milk from those very buffaloes.
Drink match Gage Roads Sleeping Giant IPA (India Pale Ale), WA
Paneer, crusty bread and a good chutney – that sounds like a very life-affirming sort of dish. It reminds me of sitting in an English pub garden having a ploughman’s (of sorts). Bees are buzzing everywhere, the cricket is on the radio, and the beer isn’t too fizzy. So how about an Australian take on this English ale as a match? This Sleeping Giant IPA gives a nod to the English style whilst also retaining its intense Aussie refreshment factor. It has a nice bit of sweetness and some fruity flavours to match the chutney, whilst also having a nice hoppy character. Happy days!
Ingredients3L unhomogenised buffalo milk
300ml lemon juice
¼ tsp salt
PreparationPlace the milk into a heavy-based pan and bring to the boil. Add the lemon juice and stir slowly until the milk curdles and separates the curds and whey.
Line a colander with cheesecloth and pour the curds and whey into the colander. Tie the top of the cheesecloth and weigh down with heavy cans for 30 minutes or until the paneer is firm. (The longer you press it, the firmer it will be.)
Remove the cloth and store in the refrigerator in an airtight container until ready to use.
Serve with crusty bread and your favourite chutney.

Smoking with paperbark (native Aust)
You can use Australian native paperbark in place of baking paper when cooking en papillotte. Simply fold the paperbark around a fillet of fish (including any other herbs and spices) and fold the open ends inwards. Secure with string (as you would tie a birthday present) and cook on the barbecue. Paperbark is not edible.
Fresh or dried broad beans.
