“Hmm, a dessert my family and friends like. Usually in recipes found online, close to paneer material is made of one half of the milk used. Instead I just add crushed paneer that I have prepared before-to make the process faster. (Have not used ready made paneer for this recipe) To make paneer--check out my homemade paneer recipe”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 panir (small pieces crushed)
  • 1 12 cups whole milk
  • 4 teaspoons sugar (more or less if desired)


  1. Start with heating the milk in a non-stick saucepan.
  2. Stir frequently. When it comes to a boiling temperature, add the crushed paneer.
  3. From then on--keep stirring till all the milk evaporates and you have your milk cake.
  4. Add the sugar and mix well. (Some people like it a bit darker than cream color).
  5. Spread it on alum. foil or baking sheet (about 0.5-1" thick).
  6. Cut into pieces to store. (Mine usually doesn't last to store, everyone likes to eat it warm).
  7. Enjoy!
