Channar Payesh Recipe / Paneer kheer Recipe / Paneer Payasam recipe

Standard

 

Channar payesh is a delicious bengali dessert made with the combination of milk, paneer(cottage cheese), saffron and nuts. It’s done mostly on the festival time. It consumes little time, but worth spending time on this dish. Everything in this dish is rich like the look, the taste, the texture and the ingredients. This recipe cuts down the calories. It is also known as Paneer kheer or cottage cheese kheer. This was my attempt and also I came out very well.
