It is an irresistible sweet.The spongy & mildly sweet paneer balls dunked in the richness of milk, creaminess of nuts & mingled flavours of cardamom & saffron. I doubt if anyone would not like this divine dessert.


Ingredients:


For paneer balls:


1 liter milk
2-3 tsp lemon juice

4 cups water
1 cup sugar


For milk:


1 liter milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cardamom powder
1 tbsp pistachios, almonds, cashew nut chopped
15-20 strands of saffron soaked in milk

Method:


For paneer balls:


1. Mix 4 cup water,1 cup of sugar in a pan & boil till all sugar is dissolved. Turn off fire & keep
    syrup aside.

2. Heat 1 liter milk in a pan, once milk comes to a rolling boil, slowly add lemon juice.

3. When milk curdles (paneer), switch off stove & strain paneer in a cloth.

4. Pour a little cold water over paneer & hang cheese cloth on tap for approx 30 mins to
    remove all of liquid.

5. Remove paneer from cheese cloth & run it through a food processor to smooth it out or
    knead  paneer in a plate by hand till very smooth. 

6. Divide paneer into 12 equal portions & roll portions in your hands until a smooth ball is
    formed. Press ball until it flattens out.

7. Reheat syrup to boiling, then simmer & gently drop in paneer balls. Cook for 10 minutes.
