How to make Oreo Paneer Modak Recipe
To begin making Oreo Paneer Modak Recipe, remove the creamy portion in the Oreo Biscuits in a mixing bowl, take all the biscuits and grind the biscuits to a fine powder in a mixer grinder. Take it out in a bowl.
Grate the paneer and grind it until it turns to a fine paste.
Add the powdered biscuits and cream to the paneer. Knead the mixture well.
Add butter, condensed milk and Cardamom Powder into a hot kadai on medium low heat and slowly stir until the mixture is bubbly.
Add the Paneer and Biscuit mixture to it and slowly mix it well with a spatula. Once the mixture becomes thick switch off the heat.
Let the mixture cool a little.
Grease the Modak mold with little butter and take a small portion of the mixture at a time in your palm and roll it.
Press the mixture in the mold and shape it. Remove the Excess mixture. You can do this with your hands also, but since there is no frying or baking involved after this step and due to ingredients used in this recipe, the modaks may not be uniform and hold shape well.
Now slowly remove the Modak and keep on butter papaer or butter greased plate.
