Chanar Payesh Recipe

Among many Bengali sweet recipes this is one of my favorite recipe. Traditional Bengali sweets are always famous in entire India.
Here I have shared a easy recipe for chanar payes which is made with paneer or cottage cheese with thick milk mixture. I have used homemade paneer which is made with 1ltr of full cream milk for this and  I have used Amulspray to make thick creamy milk mixture. For garnishing I have used Almond, Cashews and Pistachios but you can skip this if you are not a dry fruit lover.

In West Bengal and Bangladesh this sweet dish is famous as Chanar payes but in other part of India people call it Cottage cheese pudding or Paneer kheer but recipe is almost similar.
