How to make Kacha Gola

  1. Take fresh cottage cheese or paneer and mash it well with the help of your hands. Break all lumps to make it as smooth as possible.
  2. You can use store brought paneer only if it is fresh, but I prefer using home made paneer for making kacha gola.
  3. Once the paneer is smooth enough, add cardamom powder, soaked saffron and powdered sugar. Mix everything well to make a soft and smooth dough.
  4. Take a tray and arrange mini muffin paper liners on it.
  5. Pinch a lemon sized ball from the paneer mix and roll it between your palm to make a smooth ball.
  6. Place the ball on the paper liner and similarly make more.
  7. Your kacha gola is ready and would taste great if you refrigerate it for minimum 1 hour before serving.
