  • 1- Small tin of sweetened condensed milk
  • 500 g – Paneer
  • 2 tbsp – Dairy whitener
  • 3-4 tsp – Elaichi powder


*Take a bowl and add at least 500 grams of paneer. Mash it coarsely and then add 2 tbsp of dairy whitener. Mix nicely.

*Now add 400 grams of sweetened condensed milk. You wouldn’t need extra sugar because condensed milk is sweet enough.

*Mix thoroughly to get a nice grainy paste. Now take a thick base pan, set it on medium flame and cook the mixture until it becomes thick. Make sure you stir it continuously.

*Once the mixture begins to leave the sides of the pan, it means it is cooked. Take a rectangular glass container and grease it with oil, then transfer the mixture.

*Evenly spread it and sprinkle some elaichi powder and leave it aside to cool for 3-4 hours. Cut the pieces into squares and sprinkle some pistachio flakes if you like.
