An easy and quick Paneer Kheer Recipe for the upcoming festival season. This kheer recipe requires just milk, paneer, cardamom, and some dry fruits and can be made in less than 30 minutes.
Place a kadhai on a low flame. Roast the chopped dry fruits for 5 to 7 minutes or until they become light brown. Remove them aside.
In a wide bottomed pan, boil the milk. Then, reduce the flame of the gas and continue boiling it further until the milk is reduced to half of its quantity or it gets thickened in consistency. While boiling the milk, you can place a ladle in the pan to prevent the milk from spilling out.
Add 5 to 6 tablespoons of sugar in the milk and cook further for 2 minutes until all the sugar gets dissolved.
Add the crumbled or grated paneer in the milk. Stir the milk and simmer it for 3 to 5 minutes till the paneer gets cooked.
Add the cardamom powder and roasted almonds and pistachios. Stir it for minute.
You can serve this kheer hot, warm, or cold. While serving, garnish it with some slivers of almonds and pistachios and a few saffron strands.
1) Use only fresh milk for this recipe. 2) Crumble the paneer if you are using fresh home-made paneer. If using store bought paneer or frozen paneer, grate it and then use it. If the paneer is dry or frozen, soak it in warm water for some time until it becomes soft. 3) You can also add cashews in this recipe. Since I did not have cashews in hand while making the recipe, I added only almonds and pistachios. You can skip saffron if you don’t have it while preparing the recipe.
