Krishna Janmashtami is celebrated with great enthusiasm at my sister’s place back home. She is married to a marwari boy 🙂 and I really adore her for the way she has blended with their culture & tradition 🙂 she is my darling & I love her to the moon & back. So this post of mine is dedicated to her. Every year at their home this day is celebrated with so much of joy along with family & friends. More than 150 guests come home & she cooks so many delicacies with the help of family & friends. The pic below is the collection from past 3 years or so . This is their cute temple which they decorate with flowers . look at the cute little Kanha 🙂 simply awesome . I wish you guys all a very Happy Krishna Janmashtami.
Krishna Janmashtami is the birthday of Hinduism’s favorite God – Lord Krishna, and is a popular holiday in the Hindu Calendar. Krishna took birth at midnight on the ashtami or the 8th day of the Krishnapaksha or dark fortnight in the Hindu month of Shravan (August-September). This auspicious day is called Janmashtami. Now coming back to my Malai Ladoos , this recipe doesn’t require any fancy ingredients , Paneer & condense milk & you are ready to experience the soft, delicate, ready to melt in mouth tasty ladoos in no time. Such an easy , peasy dessert.

- Mash the Paneer with your palms nicely for 5 min to make it soft.
- Now in a non stick pan pour condense milk & add mashed paneer. ( medium heat )
