Chocolate Paneer Burfi / Paneer Burfi

Chocolate Paneer Burfi is a delicious, rich milk based sweet.  It is prepared easily using few ingredients which are readily available at home.

I learnt this from my co-sister Guna. She is an expert in preparing sweets and North Indian dishes. 

It was a quick hit in my family when I prepared it the first time itself after learning the recipe from my co-sister. 

You can also try adding saffron instead of cocoa powder. Both tastes yummy.

Let's check the recipe now;
