1
First, prepare the chenna or paneer at home by boiling 1 litre of milk. Once it comes to a boil, add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. The milk will start to curdle. Drain the curdled milk and collect the chenna. Rinse it under cold water to remove the lemony taste and squeeze out the excess water.
2
In a heavy-bottomed pan, boil 1 litre of milk. Keep stirring it occasionally to prevent it from sticking to the bottom.
3
Once the milk reduces to half its quantity, add the chenna and stir well. Cook for about 10-15 minutes.
4
Add 100 grams of sugar and stir until it dissolves completely. Cook for another 10 minutes.
5
Finally, add a pinch of cardamom powder and a handful of chopped nuts for garnishing. Stir well and turn off the heat.
6
Let the Chennar Payesh cool down to room temperature. Then refrigerate it for a couple of hours before serving.
