Bengali Chanar Jalebi /Paneer Jalebi~~ SN Challenge

Been a South Indian, Bengali sweets are quite famous in my hometown and if its a special day my dad never forget to bought some rasgullas from one of the Bengali sweet stall in Pondicherry. Obviously Bengali sweets are our family favourite.Apart from rasgullas and sandesh, i dont know much about  Bengali sweets before entering to this virtual world, slowly i came to know about many more Bengali sweets and tried some at home. This time i got an another wonderful chance to try out an incredible chanar jalebi for our this month's Southvs North Challenge an event owned by Divya Pramil.

Yesterday you might have noticed thathave posted a chettinad style gravy to challenge our opposite aka Northern team and today am here with this Chanar jalebi as Chandrani of Cuisine Delights challenged the Southern team with this beautiful deep fried paneer jalebis. I heard lot about this paneer jalebis, Chandrani tempted me very much with her beautiful jalebis, finally tried them immediately with some homemade paneer.Everyone enjoyed thoroughly this pretzel like jalebis and this jalebis sounds very much easier than the usual jalebis.Thanks to Chandrani for challenging us with this beautiful chanar jalebis and we enjoyed this authentic paneer jalebis to the core.I served this jalebis with leftover sugar syrup eventhough those jalebis are well swelled in sugar syrup.


2litres Milk
Lemon juice per need
3tsp Maida
1tsp Milk
1tsp Baking powder
1/2tsp Cardamom powder
3nos Cardamom (crushed)
1cup Sugar
1/2cup Water
Oil for deep frying
Few saffron strands & nuts for serving

Boil the milk and add the lemon juice to make fresh paneer.

Now strain this curdled milk to strain the paneer, squeeze out the excess of water and keep aside for few minutes.

Meanwhile in a heavy bottom pan, bring boil the sugar and water,crushed cardamoms and stir until the sryup turns thick.

Now knead the cheese with cardamom powder,milk,maida for 15minutes to form a smooth dough.

Pinch a small ball from the prepared paneer dough and roll it as rope,twist the end of the rolled rope to form a pretzel like shape.

Heat the oil for deepfrying in medium flame, slowly drop the already prepared paneer jalebis into the oil and cook until they turns golden brown, dunno y mine didnt turned out dark brown.

Drop the cooked jalebis immediately to the warm syrup and let them sit for few hours.

Serve the paneer jalebis hot or chilled with some chopped nuts and saffron strands.
