Is It A Cake or Sweet for Diwali (A Last-minute Diwali Sweet recipe with Paneer, Jaggery, Milk)

Paneer is a versatile ingredient in Indian cuisine and when it blends with nuts, it makes a nutritious sweet or snack for Diwali, ceremonies, festivals, or parties. Call it a steamed cake from Odisha or a juicy sweet with paneer, this healthy dessert packs a powerful punch of calories and is ready in a jiffy. Yes, it can easily satiate your sweet cravings. 


Ingredients 

140 gram- paneer/chenna (I have made paneer with 1 liter of milk) 

3-6 tbsp jaggery (please use up to 6 tbsp for kids or if you have a sweet tooth)

 1/4 cup- milk (240 ml/cup) 

nuts and raisins, cardamom pods

To begin with, you will need to make paneer at home. Of course, you may use store-bouthg as well. But I love making paneer from scratch and will soon post my paneer making video. If you have paneer handy, add it to a mixer or blender along with cardamom pods and blend until smooth.

Now it's time to blend it again along with 1/4 cup milk, 3 tbsp jaggery (please add more - this steamed cake from Odisha has only a hint of sweetness but if you like it to appeal to kids, add at least 5-6 tbsp of jaggery). Blend until it becomes a smooth, creamy batter. Meanwhile, you will need to set aside a steamer to steam the batter for the steamed paneer cake. Pour the batter in a greased vessel.

I have steamed the rich decadent and healthy cake in a pressure cooker. Add 2 cups of water to the cooker. Place the bowl or jar with the batter . cover with a lid and steam for 40-50 minutes.








remove .let it cool. refrigerate and slice. enjoy odisha's steamed cake.

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body.  Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking.
