Chanar Payesh / Paneer Kheer


Chanar Payesh is a traditional Bengali dessert recipe in which soft, crumbled panner will be cooked in semi thickened milk along with condensed milk and green cardamom. The texture of Chanar Payesh is very important - neither too thick nor too thin. In one word this Payesh tastes delicious and more over it is very easy to make. During summer, when you want to make some cold, lightly sweetened dessert for any occasion or party, then Chanar Payesh is the best option as it takes very less time to cook than other typical desserts.


  • Paneer or Chana from 1 and half liters of milk.
  • 4 Tablespoons of condensed milk or 1/4th cup of sugar.
  • 1 liter of full fat milk.
  • 2 pieces of green cardamom.
  • 1 Tablespoon of chopped pistachios.
