HOW TO COOK
Blend Paneer in mixy jar..
Then heat pan with ghee and add paneer and sir continuously for 5 minutes in medium flame...
Now add sugar and mix well..You can see some liquid type of consistency..
Keep flame in low and stir without stopping until it thickens..Add in cardamom powder too..
When the time paneer turns tight and hard it will separates from pan...It looks like a ball now and completely dry too..
Once you feel,it is done apply some ghee to plate and keep half of the the paneer dough..
To the remaining paneer add in cocoa and cook for 2 more minutes by mixing every second..Then turn off..
After 5-8 minutes apply some ghee to palms and start making pedas..Take goose berry size plain paneer mix into hands and take the same quantity of choco paneer mix also..
Combine those and give a shape like PEDA.. (By pressing cookies cutters i got those designs on pedas)..
Yummy Paneer chocolate peda is ready..Serve warm or cold...
I ground paneer directly in the mixy jar..(forgotten removing water from the packet)
So,mine paneer mix is wet for and stirred long time..
If you use store bought ricotta cheese,then drain paneer from water and start grinding.
You can try this fresh home made paneer too..If it looks too thick you can add 1-2 tsps of milk..
Use good quality cocoa powder for best taste.
If you want burphi do like this,cook for few more minutes until it turns dry then spread a paneer layer on plate and on top spread another paneer choco layer and cut into desired shape..After some time separate the slices and serve
You can add some nuts on top for rich look..Try chocolate horlicks powder for a change/if available.
