Ingredients :-
Chhena (Paneer) - 1 cup
Suji (Semolina) - 1 tsp
Maida (All purpose flour) - 1 tsp
A Pinch of Soda-Bicarbonate 
Cardamom Powder - 1/4 tsp
A Pinch of Yellow Food colour (Optional)
A Pinch of Salt
Oil for Deep Frying

For Sugar Syrup :-
Sugar - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup
Cardamom - 2 nos.
A Pinch of Kesar (Saffron)

Method :-
I have always prefer a fresh home made chhena / Paneer, which is very easy to make. Just boil 1 ltr milk, when it started to boiling, add 2 tsp Vinegar or Lemon juice and switch off the flame. Leave it for 10 minutes. Drain the water by using a muslin cloth. Tightly knot / fold it to drain out all the moisture from the chhena. Now, its ready for using any of your choice recipe.

Mash the Chhena/Paneer thoroughly by your palm. Add semolina, all purpose flour, a pinch of salt, Soda-bicarbonate and mix it well. Confirm that there should be no lumps in the mixture. Add cardamom powder and yellow colour (Optional) and again mix it. Take a little portion of chhena and make a round shape. Now heat Oil in a deep pan. Add slowly one by one and deep fry it in a low-medium flame till golden brown in colour.

Boil sugar and water in a pan together to make a sugar syrup. Add crushed cardamom and a pinch of kesar to the syrup for a good flavor. Add the Chhena Bara directly from the frying pan to the sugar syrup. Let it remain for 30 minutes in the syrup. Now its Ready to Enjoy your dessert or Sweet dish.
