  • 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

  • Make fresh paneer and keep it aside for 10-15 minutes.
  • Do not squeeze it very hard, a spongy texture with a little moisture is good enough.
  • Heat little ghee in a pan, roast cashews and keep it aside.
  • Now, take paneer in a bowl and mix it with semolina and cardamom.
  • Start kneading it till you get a very mashed quality, this will take 3-4 minutes.
  • Add sugar and nuts and again mix it with paneer thoroughly to get a crumbly mixture finally.
  • Now, in the ramekins, spread a little ghee and keep them on low flame to melt it properly.
  • Add sugar to it and let it caramelise for a minute.
  • Pour in the paneer mix over the caramelised sugar.
  • Press it with fingers to form an even surface.
  • Preheat the oven at 185 deg.C and make sure to cover the ramekin with a foil paper and bake the ramekins for 25-30 minutes.
  • Insert a toothpick to check if it is cooked.
  • Cool it for a while, and take it out from the ramekin.
  • Serve it warm.
