Chhena poda  Recipe with  Ricotta Cheese

This Chhena poda recipe is a baked fresh paneer/cheese/chhena dessert from the Indian state of Odisha. Instead of homemade chhena, use ricotta to keep the simple recipe even simpler. The combination of ricotta and caramelization sugar will make your chhena poda undeniably rich, delicious and pillowy soft.

Step 1. Grease your cake tin. I have used a 6 inch cake tin here

Step 2. In a bowl mix ricotta, one tin of sweetened condensed milk, 2 table spoons of semolina, 1 tablespoons of cardamom powder

Step 3. Pour the mixture into the cake tin and loosely cover with a foil

Step 5. Take the foil out and let the cheena poda bake for another 15 minutes or till the top turn golden brown.
