Paneer Paramannam - Paneer Sweet Rice

In India, paramannam, a traditional recipe is offered as prasadam (sacred food) to God on festival occasions before performing pooja (prayer).
On the occasion of Krishnastami I prepared paramannam  with a little twist by adding paneer pieces to give extra taste and nutrition to the recipe.
Ingredients


Basmati rice : 1 cup
Milk : 4 cups
Jaggery : 1 cup
Paneer  pieces : 1cup
Cardamom powder : 1 tea spoon
Ghee : 2 table spoons
Cashew nuts : few 
Raisins : few
Pistachios : few 

Method

Wash and soak rice for 15 minutes.
Boil milk in a vessel.
When milk starts boiling, add soaked rice to it and cook till rice become soft.
Add jaggery , cardamom powder to it and mix well.
Now add paneer pieces into the above mixture and cook for 5 minutes on low flame
Heat ghee in a pan add cashew nuts and raisins, fry till turns light brown.
Pour them in the above mixture and mix well.
Garnish with pistachios.
Delicious "Paneer paramannam" is ready to serve.


Happy Krishnastami to all bloggers and Viewers
