Sheetal Kamat

This is my favorite bengali sweet. So when I was making Ajoy's favorite mishti dohi i decided to pamper myself with these. Turned out very delicious.

2 liter Milk
4 Spoon Vinegar
1 Spoon Rawa
2 Cups Khoya
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
2.5 Cup Sugar
Silver leaf
Pistachio Powder
A pinch of Baking Powder
Couple Pinch of Saffron

  • Keep 1/4 cup milk aside and bring remaining milk to boil and add in vinegar mixed with two spoon of water.
  • Stir till the whey separates out and milk cuddles.
  • Strain it through sieve and run through cold water. Let it sit there for 5 minutes so that water drains out completely.
  • Mix sugar with 6 cups of water in a cooker and bring it to boil.
  • Take out this paneer from the sieve and knead till very soft dough forms.
  • Add in rawa and baking powder and knead again.
  • Make thin flat squares and add half of them into the sugar syrup boiling in cooker
  • Close the cooker lid and let out one whistle. Lower the heat and let it cook for another 10 minutes. Let it cool
  • Takeout the cooked paneer and add another 2 cups of water in the cooker. Bring it to boil and add remaining paneer pieces to cook just like the earlier ones.
  • When the second batch is cooled down store all paneer pieces with the syrup in the fridge overnight
  • In the morning grate the khoya and add in powdered sugar in it.
  • Warm the remaining 1/4 cup of milk and add in the Saffron in it. Add it to the khoya and knead till smooth.
  • Take out the cooked paneer pieces from the fridge and cut each into triangle shape
  • Make sandwiches by adding a layer of khoya paste we made between two triangles. Also sprinkle some pistachio powder on the khoya layer as well as on top of the sandwich
  • Garnish with the silver leaf and serve chilled.
Instead of making thick pieces and cutting it through i made thin slices to begin with. So i could use single piece as it is.

    If you are staying abroad, it is available in indian store.
    If in India, you would need to ask around.
