Milk 1 tablespoon

Kewra essence or cardamom powder or essence 2-3 drops

Water 1 cup

Icing sugar/ powdered sugar as per need.

METHOD

  1. Cut paneer into small cubes of about 1/2 inch size, as shown in the picture. Keep aside.
  1. In a wide pan, add sugar with water and let it cook, stirring continuously, till the sugar dissolves.
  1. Add the milk and you will find the scum floating over the surface of water. Collect the scum with the help of a spoon and discard. Cook the syrup till it attains a one-string consistency*.

  1. When the sugar syrup thickens, remove the pan from heat. Keep twiddling the cubes with a light hand till the cubes are thickly coated with the syrup and separated from each other. The sugar syrup will turn into powdered sugar.

NOTE

*To check the 1 string consistency, take 2 drops of syrup between your index finger and thumb. Open the index finger and thumb opposite to each other and if you will see a string of syrup making up a string, your 1 string  consistency sugar syrup is ready.
If string is not making out, boil the mixture for a couple of minutes more.
