Paneer Kheer has become one of my favorite desert. Not only it is easy to make, but it taste really really delicious and cools out body instantly. It is best served chilled, perfect desert for this summer.
Paneer, also known as Indian cottage cheese, is a fresh acid-set cheese prepared from cow or buffalo milk that is popular in the Indian subcontinent (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka). Kheer, also known as Payasam, is a sweet food and a sort of wet pudding popular in India. It is often made with boiling milk, sugar or jaggery, and rice, however it can also be made with daals, bulgur wheat, millet, tapioca, vermicelli, or sweet corn. Desiccated coconut, cardamom, raisins, saffron, cashews, pistachios, almonds, or other dried fruits and nuts are commonly used to flavour it.
Ingredients for Paneer kheer
Paneer is packed with healthy fats and milk proteins, making it an excellent source of nourishment for strong bones, teeth, and skin. It has a soft, milky flavour and a rich crumbly texture that complements strong spice flavours wonderfully.
Milk of good quality has a fairly bland flavour, a faint sweetness, little odour, and a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. It functions as a thickener. Kheer gets its taste and flavour from milk.
Cardamom Powder :
Cardamom powder provides a lovely aroma and flavour to the dish.
You can serve paneer kheer hot, warm or chilled.
