Chhanar Payesh

Chhanar Payesh by Ratna Prakash


  1. Whole milk – 2 litres
  2. Fresh Paneer – 250gms, cut into small squares
  3. Sugar – ¾ cup or to taste
  4. Raisins – 1/2 cup
  5. Green Cardamoms – 10
  6. Almonds – 1 tablespoon, blanched and cut in slivers


Bring milk to boil in a heavy bottomed pan. Add the green cardamoms and simmer till it reduces to 1 and 1/2 liters. Add paneer and raisins. Simmer till raisins are plump and paneer is soft. Add sugar to taste. (I would add not more than 3/4 cup. But a table spoon less would be better). Serve chilled. You could garnish with slivered almonds which have been soaked in water.
