Paneer Rice Pudding

Paneer is a good source of calcium, which helps build strong bones and teeth, and also prevents osteoporosis. Cheese provides 25% of the calcium in the food supply.Paneer in moderation, is associated with lower body weight as well as reduced risk of developing insulin resistance syndrome. Paneer is a good source of protein and it reduces cancer risk.they can prevent stomach disorders and even help with your bones as you get older, especially in women, also helps in lower, back and joint pain. i prepared paneer at home for making kadai paneer, they were some leftover paneer laying in my fridge...i want to prepare them as something creamy sweet, so prepared them as pudding with rice, they turned out delicious.


1cup Paneer pieces
2tbsp Almond powder
1/2cup Raw rice
1/2litre Milk + 2tbsp of milk
1/2cup Sugar
1tsp Cardamom powder
few strands of Saffron
1tsp Ghee
few pomegranate pieces

Take a pressure cooker, add 1tsp of ghee n roast the raw rice for few minutes, add the milk n sugar, close the cooker with lid n pressure cook them upto 5 hisses...keep aside n let them cool...grind finely paneer pieces n almond powder with 2tbsp of milk into thick paste...open the pressure cooker n blend bit coarsely with hand blender, add the thick grounded paste of paneer-almond, bring everything to boil, add the cardamom powder n saffron strands, put off the stove...keep aside n let them cool...conserve them in fridge for atleast 1hour...

Serve chilled, garnish them with pomegranate pieces!!!
