Servings 2 persons


  • Malai Paneer - 200 gm
  • Sugar - 200 gm
  • Cardamom Powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Water - 100 ml


  • In a pan mix together water, sugar and cardamom powder and bring it to boil.
  • Let it boil until the syrup reaches a half thread consistency. When you take a drop of the syrup between your thumb and index finger and pull them apart, it should form a thread half way and break. That is half thread consistency.
  • Add cubed paneer into the syrup and allow it to boil on medium flame.
  • The syrup will start thickening and foaming.
  • When it is really thick, remove the paneer cubes and place on a tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Make sure you lay the cubes separately.
  • Once cool, the sugar becomes a crusty layer on top of the cubes and the inside will be juicy and soft.
  • Store in airtight jar once cool.
