Chhanar Payesh | Paneer Kheer

The last recipe for this week's Blogging Marathon with the theme - Cheese is one of the recipes that I had bookmarked long ago and finally I got to try it.

This recipe from from Sanjeev Kapoor's No Oil Vegetarian Cooking . Though I got this book almost 4 years back, I have not tried any recipe from this book .

So this week for the dessert, under the theme, Cooking from a cookbook , I chose this cheese based dish

The original recipes has the paneer crumbled and added to the kheer. But I made small balls out of  the paneer and added it to the payesh

I used:

Home made paneer from 500ml milk
Maida / All purpose flour - 1 tablespoon
Milk - 750  ml
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Pistachio nuts for garnishing

  1. Crumble the paneer and add the maida to it.Knead well for a few minutes and cover and keep side.
  2. Heat milk with the sugar and simmer once it starts boiling.
  3. Let it reduce to 3/4th the original volume.Keep stirring to prevent the milk from sticking to the bottom of the pan / burning.
  4. Make small balls of from the kneaded paneer and gently drop them into the simmering milk.
  5. Remove the pan from heat after a few minutes.
  6. Chill and serve garnished with chopped pistachio nuts.

Lil Angel loved the small paneer balls and it as really a hit at home....
