Thandai Paneer Peda

Holi came and gone and what to do with extra thandai masala? Can't wait for the next Holi so add it in the paneer and milk powder and make peda. Good idea? Best idea. Don't believe me, make it and enjoy it for next Holi or as it is for after diner dessert. I made it and loved it, We all make Kesar Malai Peda from Ricotta  or regular peda, adding this spiced mix, it gives nice flavor to simple peda and use up leftover spice mix and paneer too. Now when ever I make paneer , I washed them while taking away the whey so if I decided to make sweet things out of it, I don't have to worry about ruining my dish. This is very quick and will be done in under 30 minutes.

Ingredients :

1 cup home made paneer , I had little bit more than that.
1/3 cup Milk powder
1/3 cup Milk
1 tbsp. butter
1 cup sugar or adjust with your sweet tooth
1/4 tsp. cardamom powder
2 tbsp. thandai powder or as per your taste
few almonds or what ever nuts you like for garnish


Melt butter in non stick pan.
add milk in it and boil it once.
Then add milk powder and mix it very well so no lumps there.
Add paneer and cook till it leaves sides. Mine took good 20 minutes.
Make sure you scrap away sides and continuous stirring so it does not stick at the bottom.
when it leaves side and form a soft dough kind of consistency, take it away from flame and put it in a bowl.
when its cold , add sugar, cardamom power and thandai powder and mix it. Make sure its cold otherwise if you add sugar in hot mix, it leaves water and you can not make nice circle. If by mistake you add sugar in hot mix and water is coming out, let it cool for sometime and then make balls.
You can make it without thandai masala also. Just simple Paneer peda.
You have to feed your family so depend upon that , make small or big circles and put a indent in middle of the ball so you can put nuts in it.

Depend upon the weather, you can keep this out or in the fridge. I like to keep it in fridge though so it stays fresh.
