Chhena Or Paneer/cottage cheese Kheer/Pudding Or chhanar paesh


Happy Krishna Janmashtami to everyone.

Janmashtami is an annual celebration of the birth of the Hindu deity Krishna.

May Lord Krishna bring happiness in your life.

Made chhena kheer/ chanar paesh or cottage cheese pudding on this auspicious day.

A rich creamy delicious delicacy of Bengal.

I used only almonds in the kheer but you can add your choice of dry fruits.

It tastes heavenly both hot and cold.




Full cream milk  – 7 cup

Cottage cheese or paneer  – 3/4 cup

Sugar  – 1/4 cup or to taste

Saffron  – few strands

cardamom powder  – 1/2 teaspoon

Almonds  – few soaked



Soak the saffron in 1 tablespoon warm milk and keep aside.

Crumble the cottage cheese with your finger tips and keep aside.

Boil the milk in a thick bottom pan. Reduce flame and simmer till the milk thicken.

Stir occasionally to avoid burning.

When the milk thicken add the soaked saffron and sugar. Stir well.

Simmer for another 6-7 minutes.

Now add the crumbled paneer,  peeled and chopped almonds or any nuts you want to use.

Stir and simmer for another 4-5 minutes.

Consistency should be thick and creamy.

Switch off the flame. Add cardamom powder. Stir well.

Bring to room temperature before chilling in refrigerator.

The kheer will thicken when completely cooled.
You can add little milk if you want thinner consistency.

Garnish with almonds or any nuts.

Serve chilled or at  room temperature.

Enjoy the heavenly taste.

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!
