  • 1.5 cup - fresh Paneer ( made from 2 kg Milk )
  • 1/2 cup - Sugar
  • 2 tbsp - semolina
  • A pinch of Cardamom
  • 1 tbsp - Ghee
  • Handful of Raisins and cashews
  • How to Make Chhena Poda:

    1. Make fresh paneer and keep it aside for 10-15 minutes.
    2. Do not squeeze it very hard, a spongy texture with a little moisture is good enough.
    3. Heat little ghee in a pan, roast cashews and keep it aside.
    4. Now, take paneer in a bowl and mix it with semolina and cardamom.
    5. Start kneading it till you get a very mashed quality, this will take 3-4 minutes.
    6. Add sugar and nuts and again mix it with paneer thoroughly to get a crumbly mixture finally.
    7. Now, in the ramekins, spread a little ghee and keep them on low flame to melt it properly.
    8. Add sugar to it and let it caramelise for a minute.
    9. Pour in the paneer mix over the caramelised sugar.
    10. Press it with fingers to form an even surface.
    11. Cover it with a foil paper and bake the ramekins for 25-30 minutes.
    12. Insert a toothpick to check if it is cooked.
    13. Cool it for a while, and take it out from the ramekin.
    14. Serve it warm.
