Though festive season is on and it calls for lots and lots of festive dishes too. Few days back we had our fast of teej , so I made this dessert for my sargi , early in the morning. It is so easy to prepare and require only few ingredients and quick too, that any amateur can also make it perfectly.
If you are craving for ras malai and don't have courage to try at your own then give this a try. It's taste is much more alike ras malai . That's why my lil fussy eater, who is big fan of ras malai , also loved it.
Now a days ganpati Mahotsav is going on with all celebrations and offerings. So you can prepare this too for your ganpati as bhog. Recipe adopted from food food Chanel .

First of all grind cardamom and sugar together to fine powder. Keep aside for later use.
Now put the milk in a thick bottom pan to boil. Let it boil for 5-6 mins then add powdered sugar with cardamom and mix well. Now add saffron milk and again stir.
Add crumbled paneer and mix well. Let it simmer for 4-5 mins and switch off the flame.
Let it come to room temperature and then keep in fridge to chill for atleast 3-4 hrs or overnight.
Now serve in individual dishes and garnish with pistachio and cherry.
Your super easy tempting dessert is ready to win hearts.
** You can also serve warm but chilled one tastes best.
**** Never overcook paneer after adding to milk otherwise it will become chewy.
*** Always use soft paneer for best result.
** Grinding cardamom with sugar is just for ease of grinding cardamom. You can also use cardamom powder and sugar separately without grinding.
***You can prepare this dessert on fasting day too as it's pure falahar and not containing any grain.
** If you wish to add dry fruits to it , just go for it.
Hope you all will prepare it at your home and do remember me too. Please pour your valuable comments and suggestions ,they meant a lot.
