Preparation Time : 10

Cook Time : 20

Total Time : 30


Serves 6

  • 1 litre full cream milk

  • 3 tbsp. vinegar

  • 5-6 tbsp. sugar

  • 2-3 green cardamoms

  • 1 tbsp. chopped pistachios

  • 1 tbsp. rose water


  • 01

    Grind the sugar and the cardamoms to a fine powder and keep aside. To make the paneer, boil milk. After it comes to a boil, take off the fire.

  • 02

    Mix the vinegar with 3 tbsp. water and slowly add to the milk and give a stir. After a few seconds you will notice the milk curdling.

  • 03

    Drain in a muslin cloth and keep under a running tap so that the smell of the vinegar is washed away. Now mash the paneer with the back of your palm for 2-3 minutes.

  • 04

    Then mix the sugar and the rose water and continue to mash for another 2 minutes till it is very smooth and there are no lumps.

  • 05

    Put this mix in a greased steel tiffin box with a lid (in the absence of a lid, use aluminium foil to close the container in which it is steamed). Sprinkle some chopped pistachios over it.

  • 06

    Place the tiffin box in the pressure cooker containing some water in the bottom. Steam without the vent for 5 minutes on high flame and then 10 minutes on low flame. When it cools down a little, refrigerate it. Cut into desired shape and serve.
