Ingredients:

2 pounds paneer or ricotta cheese
2 quarts half and half
2 cups sugar
5 pieces cardamom pods
1 piece bay leaf
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon rose water to taste
 

Preparation / Directions:

1. Mix 1.5 cups of sugar with the cheese and bake it in a 400F oven for about 1 hr and 15 minutes in a flat dish covered with aluminum foil. The cheese should have hardened and turned a pale brown. 2. Thicken the Half and Half by simmering over low heat for a long time. This is best done in a microwave; if a microwave is not available, do it over low heat and stir frequently. Thicken until the volume drops to around half of the original volume. 3. Add the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, cardamom pods, bay leaf, vanilla and rose water (and any other flavoring that you may want) to the Half and Half. Heat for a few minutes. 4. After the cheese has been baked, cut it into 1 inch squares and add to the hot thickened half and half. Cool for a few hours in the fridge.
