This is a quick recipe of kheer as you really don’t have to wait for hours to thicken the milk as this is the recipe of kheer with condensed milk which combined with paneer takes very less time to make thick and creamy kheer.
The paneer kheer has been flavored with cardamom powder, saffron.always use fresh milk while making this kheer. The recipe tastes somewhat like rasmalai with soft succulent crumbled paneer in flavored & sweetened milk.

- If you decide to make the paneer ki kheer, always try to use fresh milk and paneer, I can’t stress on these enough. In fact, any dessert if you make with fresh milk comes out much tastier.
