Chena Murki Recipe | How to make Chena Murki with detailed photos. Chena murki is a popular milk-based Bengali sweet made with Paneer (Indian cottage cheese), sugar, and cardamom.

Chena murki is prepared by cooking the paneer cubes in sugar syrup until they turn dry. It is a very simple recipe that can be made with very few ingredients. 

Generally, rose water or kewra water is used to add flavor to chena murki but here in this recipe, I am using only cardamom powder so that anybody can prepare it easily at home. Also, I’m using Homemade Paneer to make this recipe more flavorful.

7. Now take a few drops of sugar syrup on a plate and check for one string consistency with your fingers. If it does not get one string consistency, boil the sugar syrup for a few more minutes.

8. Now add paneer pieces to the sugar syrup.

9. Also, add ¼ teaspoon cardamom powder and mix well.

10. Boil the paneer pieces in sugar syrup.

11. Stir continuously. After some time sugar syrup starts reducing.

12. When bubbles are formed and sugar syrup looks thick, turn off the flame.

13. Remove the kadhai from the stovetop and continuously stir the paneer until it cools down. It helps to coat the sugar syrup evenly on paneer pieces.

14. After cooling down, sugar will solidify and will make chena murki dry.
