Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Serves: 6

Serving size: 1 cup (200g)


  • Low-fat milk or almond milk, 3 cups
  • Low-fat paneer (cottage cheese), 1 cup, grated
  • Stevia, 2 tsp
  • Cardamom powder, ¼ tsp


  1. Pour low-fat milk or almond milk into a non-stick pan, and put on a low-medium heat.
  2. The milk should gently boil in the pan. Stir the milk now and then to avoid sticking to the pan's bottom.
  3. When the milk begins to boil constantly while stirring, gently mix in the grated low-fat paneer.
  4. Stir the mixture occasionally to prevent it from sticking to the bottom and distribute the paneer evenly.
  5. Allow the mixture to boil for 10-12 minutes.
  6. After the mixture has simmered for a while, add the stevia. Adjust the quantity to get your desired level of sweetness.
  7. Add the cardamom powder. This will give the dish a lovely flavour and fragrance.
  8. Allow the kheer to cook for 2-3 minutes. Kheer should have a creamy consistency.
  9. Allow the kheer to cool down before serving.

Storage: Store any leftover paneer kheer in the refrigerator and consume within 2-3 days.
