Method

In a bowl mix paneer and sugar nicely till soft and smooth. If you like you can add little more sugar. Taste after mixing before adding more.

You can grind or blend it too. Add orange juice and orange zest mix properly. Knead it nicely until soft and smooth.

Take a steel container and grease it with ghee/clarified butter. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon sugar and pieces of orange segment.

Add the paneer mixture and cover with lid. If you don’t have with lid container take a steel bowl and cover tightly with aluminum foil.

In a pressure cooker add 1 cup water and place the container in it. Cover the cooker lid but don’t put the weight over the vent pipe. Cook it for 20 minutes on medium flame.

Take the container out, turn it on a plate. Leave it to cool at room temperature and then refrigerate it for an hour.

Slice and enjoy the heavenly taste.

Batter Up With Sujata

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!
