Mango Paneer Kheer

Some time back there was this public building which stood surrounded with scaffolding for what seemed like an eternity.But the poor old building retained it's freshly painted look for just a few days after reopening before people decided to show their rebellion by spraying Graffiti on it.Graffiti doesn't affect you until your kids reach the reading age,until then you see Graffiti with unseeing eyes.I still remember the time my daughter started reading, she would get all excited and try to read the stuff sprayed on the wall. And as if that weren't enough, the reading out was usually followed by a questioning session:
'Mummy what does that mean ? '
'It's a bad word Sophie,ignore it ,you should never use it'
'Who wrote it on the wall ?'
'Some grown up, who was apparently jobless'
'Can grown ups do all that they want,when will I be a grown up ?'

It's then that I look at her and feel, how nice it would be if she would always remain this small little innocent child.'Can grown ups do everything that they want ?',isn't that the trickiest question of all.We have all the freedom in the world but can do nothing with it,but a child with its restrictions leads a more happy and free life.Life and its ironies !!

Coming to the recipe,this is one of my favourite desserts.It's pretty easy to make and sure to be a hit .I usually make it without the Mango.But the Mango season tempted me to add Mango to it and it turned out yummier than I expected.Off to the recipe !

Serves 4
You'll Need:
Whole Milk - 150 ml
Condensed Milk(unsweetened) - 125 ml
Sugar -  2 Tb
Cardamom seeds - 2
Paneer(Cottage Cheese) or fresh khoya - 100 g (grated finely)
Mango pulp(finely ground)  - about a cup
Ghee - 1 Tb
Nuts (Cashew and Almond) -  2 Tb

-Crush the cardamom pods and take the seeds.Pulse the seeds with the sugar in a blender a few times.
-In a wide mouthed thick bottomed pan,bring the whole milk and condensed milk to a boil.
-When it starts boiling,reduce the heat and simmer on the lowest heat for 20 - 25 mins.Keep stirring it often to make sure that it doesn't get burnt at the bottom.You can do this while your cooking something else so that you can keep and eye on it and stir it .
-Once it's reduced to 3/4 of it's original quantity.Add the sugar and stir well.let it simmer for another 2 - 3 mins.
-Add the Paneer and mix well.Simmer for another 4 -5 mins and remove from the stove.
-In a small pan heat the ghee and add the nuts,when they are slightly browned remove it from the stove.
-Add the nut and ghee mixture to the Paneer Kheer. Let it cool completely.
-Add the Mango and stir well.Chill for a few hours before serving.

Note: Make sure its fully cool before you add the mango.

Thanks for stopping by !Have a lovely day !


  1. Yes... something too deep in her question... I also wish at times that kids remained the same... That kheer looks delicious... A sprinkling of nuts would have helped... :)
