With the onset of festive season,every Indian household would be gearing up for the preparation. Every region,every household has their own traditional sweets. Being brought up in a religious family,I have always enjoyed each and every festival since childhood. I have so many memories related to food on festive occasions. One thing I must mention is that the festive food used to be rich and equally delicious. Also each occasion demanded its own symbolic dishes resulting in a wide variety of sweets through out the year.
As I hail from Odisha(an eastern state of India) most of the deserts are Chenna (paneer/Indian Cottage cheese) based – Rasagulla, Chena poda,Rasabali,Kheera and lot more. And I bet you will fall in love with these sweets instantly.
Kheera is nothing but Paneer kheer where milk is reduced to thick consistency along with fresh cottage cheese. It is served as prasad to lord Jagannathat Puri temple.
I have added my own little twist to the authentic preparation.
