Malai ladoo or paneer ladoo recipe – diwali sweet recipe

malai ladoo

Malai ladoo or paneer ladoo is a festive delight made with just 2 ingredients – paneer and condensed milk and flavoured with rose essence.  Malai ladoo is very popular in North India and very similar to sandesh sweet. I have tried the recipe of milkmaid ladoo recipe where they have used kewra essence.  But I had rose essence which I added to the mixture and the taste was amazing.  You can add the essence of your choice like kewra or saffron or cardamom powder.  This recipe is one of the easiest and yummiest sweet, which you can try this diwali season and treat your family with this delicious sweet.
