Sweet Paneer

Many times it happens that when we boil Milk it curdles for one reason or other and we do not know what to do with such a small quantity of Paneer that is formed. Well... here is a quick recipe my maid came up with one fine day to pacify my son's supposed "emergency" hunger pangs... Albeit, the recipe is given with measurements for curdling fresh Milk!!

  1. Milk - 1 ltr (will give about 300 gms of Paneer)
  2. Curd - 2 tbsp (To Curdle; It can be used even when Milk has curdled by itself) OR
  3. Alum / Phitkari - 1 Small piece
  4. Elaichi - 1 pod (Powdered)
  5. Sugar (To Taste)

  1. Curdle the milk and strain it till dry
  2. Pour the 1/4th of the strained liquid into a pan, add Sugar and Elaichi Powder
  3. Stir till the Sugar is dissolved
  4. Add the Paneer and keep stirring till the mixture is soft but dry
  5. Serve hot or cold

  1. Do not use either the Paneer or the leftover water if tasting foul
  2. The leftover water can be used to make Curries, Chaas or knead Flour for softer rotis
