Paneer kheer recipe - Happy Independence Day - how to make paneer kheer

 Wishing each Indian a Very Happy and Joyful Independence Day. 

India celebrates 67th Independence day  to day on Thursday, 15th  August, 2013. Each Indian enjoys the happiness of  today. I  am also celebrating this happy moment by preparing paneer kheer. I am delighted to share the home made paneer kheer with rich creamy taste. This is an aromatic kheer to serve as a dessert after meal. I added some fried cashew nuts and raisins to the kheer and it turned out delicious.I  have used home made fresh paneer and also used corn flour as thickening agent. The flavor infused with 

cardamom powder. The kheer has achieved beautiful colour with the addition of saffron soaked milk.
