Paneer ki Kheer | Chena Payesh Recipe

11:55 AM

Paneer ki Kheer or Chena Payesh is one of the most famous and traditional Bengali sweet recipe made during festivals. Chena means paneer and payesh is the word used for kheer or puddings.

It is made using freshly grated paneer or cottage cheese and milk. I have used condensed milk in this recipe which gave a more creamier taste to my kheer. You can replace it with 2 tbsps of rice powder mixed in little milk or instead you can add khoya. When cooled this kheer thickens a bit, you can make it to your desired consistency by adding little milk. This kheer is enjoyed best when chilled.

This is my third recipe for the upcoming festivals in India which you can easily make and woo your guests on these festive occassions. Let's go and see the recipe on how to make it.
