My tummy was carving for some sweets and wished to try some interesting and simple sweet with milk, as Rk is a great lover of milk sweets decided to do this... And to tell you this is the first time I'm handling curdled milk...When I saw this recipe in manjulas kitchen bookmarked and it was in my to do list for a long time because I always had a second thought for sweets with curdled milk...
But to my surprise the sweet tasted so so yummy and after a spicy chicken briyani,it's always nice to much on little sweet, I got this habit from my dad, After a light r heavy lunch he wants a little sweet to complete his meal... If we say him no then he will blame mom, that her food is spicy so he wants some sweet to suppress the spiciness... So seeing him I too started that habit. So sweet is made for us to munch on after a whole meal, give a try u will just fall in love.

Adding 2 tbs of water helps milk to prevent from burning,so add in water first then add milk and boil.
After you add in lemon juice keep string it will take at least 5 mins for full milk to curdle. So don't add in extra lemon juice or the you have more of lemon taste.
Wash the paneer thoroughly to get rind of lemon smell.Adding saffron milk is purely optional,but it adds in more flavor.
The sugar i have added would be perfect...but if you are a sweet tooth person just increase in 2 tbs.
