Your annual trip to the neighbourhood sweet shop ends this Holi.


    2 l milk
    Juice of 1 lime
    1 cup sugar

    Ghee for greasing
    Few pistachios, chopped


1. Keep 2 separate pans on a stove with 1 lt milk in each.

2. In one pan, after the milk boils, add a little lime juice so that the milk splits.

4. In the second pan, heat the milk till it reduces to half.

5. Once the milk is reduced, add the paneer to it and cook it for around 20-30 mins.
