Paneer kheer
Wish u all a very happy HOLIDancing
On this holi day,i have come up with an easy peasy kheer recipe which can be made under 15 minutes.This paneer ki kheer/cottage cheese pudding also known as Chenna kheer is an awesome bengali dessert recipe which they usually make it for festivals like dussehra,Durga pooja,Diwali and Navratri.Actually i had planned to share paneer burfi or Balushahi/Badusha recipe today as my Holi special dish.But unfortunately,all the pics gots deleted from my SD card by mistakeSad.I struggled to retrieve it but i couldn’tNot talking.I became very much disappointed but still i don’t want to give up making a sweet post on this festival day.Suddenly I remembered about this Paneer kheer recipe which i had tried for my last year’s Holi lunch menu.It was a super hit recipe in my house.So i prepared the same and refrigerated it to serve chill for my daughter and husband this evening.I am sure they will love it.Friends,if u have not planned anything for today’s celebration and if u wish to make something special and rich,this paneer kheer is a wise choice.You can make it in the next 15 minutes if u have store bought paneer ready in hand.Of course,freshly made chenna/Paneer tastes the best but still store bought paneer works fine.Its one of the best ways to make our kid consume paneer and as u all know,its a protein rich, healthy recipe for them.Try this easy paneer payasam for this festival of colors & have a fun filled,colorful celebration Party!!
Lets see how to make this paneer ki kheer..

Looks rich and colorful,tastes rich and delicious!!

This kheer tends to thicken as it cools down.So dilute it by adding more milk & sugar if u wish.


  • You can add freshly made chenna/paneer too.It tastes even more delicious and gives melt in mouth texture.
  • When u use store bought paneer,make sure u use the fresh ones.Else u may get a tangy taste.
  • Never boil the kheer for longer time after adding paneer because paneer may turn chewy.
  • Adding cardamom seeds & rose essence gives a nice flavor to the kheer.So do not skip it.
  • I used saffron threads only for photos.I did not add it in the actual recipe.
