About Paneer Barfi Recipe
Barfi or burfi is a traditional Indian fudge made with full fat milk, sugar, and ghee. Traditionally, it was made by condensing milk for several hours, then sweetening and cooking it until it reached a thick consistency.
Paneer is the most common type of cheese found in Indian subcontinental cuisine. It is occasionally wrapped in dough and deep- fried, or it is served with spinach (palak paneer) or peas (mattar paneer). Paneer can be either sweet, as in shahi paneer, or spicy, as in chilli paneer.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
Ingredients for Kashmiri Paneer Barfi Recipe
Paneer has a mild, milky flavour and a dense crumbly texture that complements the strong spicy flavours found in many traditional Indian dishes. Because it does not melt like other cheeses, chunks of it can be stirred into soups or curries and stay whole.
Sweetened Condensed Milk
Sweetened condensed milk is cooked until it thickens and becomes a creamy caramel-like pudding that can be used in a variety of dessert recipes. Its delicious on its own, with ice cream, in coffee, or spread on apple slices.
Cardamom Powder is an all-natural spice that can be used to sweeten dishes as well as flavour coffee and tea. It is also used in traditional Indian and Middle Eastern cooking, as well as Scandinavian baking.
