2. Drain the whey water and wash the paneer under cold water.

3. Now, place the washed paneer in a muslin cloth and hang it for atleast 30 minutes.

4. After 30 minutes, add flour and baking soda to the paneer. Mix them together and knead till soft.

5. Take a small quantity of paneer, make it flat and Place a little sugar inside. Now, roll it in to a smooth surfaced ball. Repeat the same procedure for the remaining paneer.
