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.

But hubby doesn't find them interesting enough to relish them. Yes, I am not joking. He loves boondi ladoos. So I have never tried making besan ladoos before. This Diwali, I wanted to give my favorite ladoos a try. But yes, the health freak in me questioned whether I was really prepared to give in my health goals to relish my favorite besan ladoos.
