Chhenar Dalna


  1. 1 litre milk (full cream or toned)
  2. 1 cup flour
  3. potatoes (2 medium sized)
  4. ginger paste (1 tbsp)
  5. cumin powder (1 tsp)
  6. garam masala powder (1 tsp)
  7. turmeric powder (1 tsp)
  8. salt as per taste
  9. sugar as per taste
  10. vinegar (2 tsp) 
  11. green chilly paste
  12. mustard oil


    Boil milk and pour vinegar into it and turn off the heat. Cover the milk. After few minutes you will see the chhena or cottage cheese and whey. Strain the cottage cheese from the whey and make sure that the whey is fully drained out from the chhena. Mix the flour with the chhena and add some sugar, salt and chilly paste into it. Make the dough, divide it into parts and deep fry them in oil. Make sure that the mixture is not too soft. Otherwise you won't be able to fry them. Now fry the chopped potatoes. Add all the spices and make the gravy. Now put the fried chhena balls into the gravy and let it cook in low flame for 5 minutes. Once it's cooked sprinkle garam masala on top and serve it hot with roti or rice.
