  • 1 Cup paneer (cottage cheese)
  • 1 litre full cream milk
  • 1/3 Cup sugar or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon saffron strands


  • Combine 1 tablespoon of warm milk and saffron strands. Set aside.
  • Crumble the paneer using your fingers. Do not make a fine mash of it.
  • Heat milk in a heavy bottom saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Add the cardamom powder and allow the milk to simmer until it reduces almost half the original amount.
  • Keep on stirring the simmering milk at regular intervals. Collect the cream (malai) from the sides of the pan and add it back to the milk.

  • Now add the grated paneer in the milk and cook for 5 – 10 minutes. Turn off the heat.
  • Allow the paneer kheer to cool completely before keeping in the fridge. It is best served chilled.
  • Garnish with sliced pistachio and almonds before serving.
  • Serve Paneer Kheer chilled.
