Paneer/Malai Ladoo

Ingredients to make Paneer/Malai Ladoo

  • Paneer / cottage cheese 1/2 cup (approx 125 gms)
  • Condensed milk 1/4 cup + 2 tsp
  • Milk 2 tsp
  • ghee 1 tsp
  • saffron strands 7 - 8
  • salt a pinch (optional)
  • cardamom powder 1/4 tsp

How to make Paneer/Malai Ladoo

  1. Crush the saffron and soak them in warm milk for 10 minutes. I have used store bought paneer, so I have just immersed in hot water for 15 minutes. If you are making fresh paneer, then soaking is not required.
  2. Take the softened paneer and crumble it in a mixie. When done, transfer it to a kadai preferably a non-stick pan. Add in condensed milk, saffron milk and a pinch of salt.
  3. Using a whisk, mix them well and then turn on the flame. To this add in 1 tsp of ghee and start stirring them on a medium flame.
  4. After 7 - 8 minutes, the moisture would have been evaporated, it becomes thick and a whole mass is formed leaving the sides of the pan.
  5. When done, turn off the flame and add in cardamom powder. Mix them well, remove them in a plate and allow them to cool down completely.
  6. As they cool down, knead them well and start making ladoos. Arrange them in a cupcake liner and decorate it with saffron strands.

My Tip:

Today I have used store bought paneer, you can replace it with fresh one. You can also flavor them with rose / Kewara essence. Cook the ladoos on medium flame else it tends to cook fast and changes the color of the ladoos. You can also top up this ladoo with nuts too.
