Cheese Cashew Burfi | Kaju Paneer Burfi

The other day I was wondering what to prepare with the Ricotta cheese pack.Kids were very relunctant to the taste of cheese as such and so thought of making it sweet and simple.Then came out the idea of a burfi,which was absent in my posts too..Very simple burfi and a perfect sweet for an untimely guest .The main ingredients are cheese ,milk powder and sugar.I had all these ingredients ready at hand and so tried this out. It was a very lovely treat.To my wonder,I made and cut it into pieces and they vanished in no time :-)






Ingredients
Ricotta cheese/paneer - 8 oz
milk powder 1/2 cup
sugar - 1/2 cup
cardamom powder 1 tsp
cashew nut  - 1/4 cup
ghee 2 tsp







Method
-Heat the paneer in a pan and let it melt.
-Blend the cashews in a bkender until smoothly powdered.Add the powdered cashew to the paneer.
-Add milk powder and sugar.Continue to cook and keep stirring till it leaves the sides of pan.
-Grease a plate or tray with ghee and transfer the contents into the plate,level it with a spoon dipped in ghee.
-Garnish with half cashew on top.
-Refrigerate for an hour, cut into desired shapes.





Servings 10-12 pieces

TIPS-
* You can replace the cashews with any other dry fruits.

Really, with ricotta cheese? I guess so, since it's so close in nature to paneer. Very creative and looks delicious.
