paneer kheer

i plan to add some quick and easy sweets for the upcoming festive season. the paneer kheer is one such recipe that can be made in a jiffy and will be done in less than 25 minutes. all you need is paneer and milk along with some dry fruits.

the paneer kheer has been flavored with cardamom powder, saffron and rose water. cardamom powder is a must. rose water give a beautiful rosy fragrance to the kheer. good to add it, but skip if you don’t have. saffron strands can be easily skipped if you don’t have these. you can also add your choice of dry fruits. always use fresh milk while making this kheer.

the recipe tastes somewhat like rasmalai with soft succulent crumbled paneer in flavored & sweetened milk. two more paneer based sweets in the blog are paneer barfi and gulab jamun with khoya.

you can serve paneer kheer hot, warm or chilled. we prefer the kheer to be chilled.

if you are looking for more paneer recipes then do check paneer butter masala, kadai paneer, matar paneer, paneer makhani and dry chilli paneer recipe.

  1. hi amit,

    can jaggery be used instead of sugar?

    • Maneesha, jaggery can curdle the milk. so if you add jaggery then add right in the end.

  2. Hi Dassana Amit,

    We have tried 3 of your recipes – Punjabi chole masala, tomato chutney and paneer kheer. They came out really well. Thanks fo your efforts. All are nice recipes.

    • thank you sriram for the feedback on the three recipes you have tried. most welcome and happy cooking 🙂

  3. Tasted just like Rasamalai 🙂 Yummy Yummy…

    Appreciate the way you patiently reply to all the comments 🙂 Love your blog..

    Thank you 🙂

    • welcome dhivya, pleased to know this. thanks for positive feedback 🙂

  4. Hello Sir,
    Can d consistency reduced after adding paner.?
    I used frozen panner, d milk is ok, not spoiled, but didn’t get kheer consistency, it’s bit milky.

    • ashwini, the paneer kheer consistency will not reduce after adding paneer. you have to first reduce the consistency and then add paneer to it. possibly the frozen paneer must have released water in the milk, there by thinning the consistency.

      • Thank you, though bit thin, still my husband liked a lot.

        Thanks again for dis quick and awesome recipe
