Paneer Kheer

It is very easy to work with cottage cheese. It blends with any flavour you might choose to infuse. It works great in a sweet dish also. The paneer kheer has a rich taste and you’ll be a hit, when your kids and hubby lick the bowls and beg for more.

  • Stick to the timings specified even if you feel it’s runny. The paneer will soak up some of the liquid.
  • You could add a tablespoon more of sugar if it suits your taste.

  1. I made paneer with 1 liter whole milk, boiled, and 1 lemon. I pressed for four hours after wringing out by twisting in the cheesecloth. I additionally let the paneer sit uncovered another 5 hours to dry out just a bit more (though moisture content already seems low). I’ve made paneer a dozen times before here in Tokyo, usually for curry.

    I made this recipe with the 60g cashew and 40g almonds.

    However, it never thickened. Any ideas?

    • It’s a Kheer. It’s supposed to be a bit runny. But if you want it thick you could do one of the following : Reduce the milk by boiling and stirring continuously OR increase the qty of the paneer.
