Channa Jalebi / Paneer Jalebi

For this month's SNC Chandrani of the North team challenged us South Team with a delicious Bengali Sweet. West Bengal is very famous for its milk sweets. This jalebi was literally mouth melting.. Little different than the regular jalebi and you can play with the shapes.. I made the standard round shape.. It was delicious and we all enjoyed it. Thanks to Divya and Chandrani for this delicious challenge. I am also sharing this for BM with Sweets from Bengal (Course wise meal from any state).
Milk - 1 liter
Lemon Juice / Vinegar - 1 tea spoon (dilute with 1/4 cup water)
Maida - 1 tea spoon (optional)
Baking Powder - 1/2 tea spoon
Cardamom Powder - 1/4 tea spoon
Cardamom - 4
Rose Water - 1 tea spoon (optional)
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Water - 1/2 cup
Saffron - a pinch
Oil - for deep frying
Boil the milk, add the lemon juice and allow it to curdle completely.
Strain the curdled milk over a muslin cloth and wash it well to ensure that the taste and smell of the lemon juice is gone
Hang the muslin cloth for around 45 minutes to get fresh paneer
Meanwhile, heat sugar and water in a heavy bottomed pan and bring it to a boil and now allow it to boil for a few minutes until the syrup is thick. Keep the flame on very low and set aside. Add saffron, rose water and cardamom
Heat oil in a kadai
Knead the paneer with cardamom powder until it forms a smooth dough. You can add little maida if needed. You will need to knead for around 15 minutes
Take small balls of the paneer and make a roll and roll the dough to make the round shape.
Deep fry the shaped jalebi until golden in medium hot oil
Transfer the jalebi to the sugar syrup and allow them to be in the syrup for a few hours
Garnish with nuts and saffron and serve hot or chilled
