Paneer kheer – a simple and delicious pudding/kheer made with Indian cottage cheese or paneer. This paneer kheer can be given to babies from one year, make sure to use powdered nuts for small babies.
I had this as a dessert in a house function and I loved it instantly, even the little one kept asking for more, when I inquired about the recipe, it was so simple but tastes unbelievably delicious. To me, it tastes somewhat similar to rasamalai 🙂 Do I have to tempt you more to try this kheer?!
- Paneer - ½ cup crumbled
- Milk - 1.5 cups
- Unrefined sugar/Jaggery powder - 2 tbsp
- Cardamom powder - a pinch
- Saffron - pinch (optional)

Here is the recipe for how to make paneer kheer for toddlers and kids
- I used homemade paneer to make this kheer.
- Adjust sweetness according to your preference.
- Add a pinch of saffron if you prefer the color of your kheer on the yellow side.
- You could also use white sugar instead of brown sugar/jaggery.
- Always check with your pediatrician before introducing any new food.
- You can add dry fruits powder or almond powder instead of chopped nuts to small babies as they might lead to choking hazard.
