NOTES : You can also add few drops of rose water to make it more exotic dessert. You can adjust the sweetness by adding more or less sugar, as desired by you. I have added 1/2 cup of paneer as I like the taste of paneer pieces in the kheer. If you want a thin consistency kheer, you can add just 1/4 cup of paneer pieces
