Tried and tasted by Nivedita
 Hi All,
I am really in a hurry to post this one in detail. Sorry. But when there is a deadline one has to finish it on time.
This time  Srivalli has chosen a sweet dish for  Indian Cooking Challenge for the month of March. Chenna Poda  is a special delicacy of  Oriya. And I loved the taste of it. Actually I love anything made of paneer or cheese. And this one is totally different. 
There were many mistakes from me while baking this but still the taste was awesome.
My first mistake was I prepared only 1/4th  quantity from given qty in the recipe.
That did not allow the Chenna poda to raise properly and get the spongy texture. I think Srivalli and my experience were same while preparing this one. 
Valli has taken this recipe from Shibani of Any one can cook and she had given the link of Titilating Tastebuds for the same recipe.

Go through her recipe CHENNA PODA for the details. I am giving only the pictures here. And please do not laugh at my photos as I turned the Chenna poda into laddoos.

Sorry Valli, my challenge did not come out well. Hope for the best in the next challenge. But what ever the shape or size, we all loved the taste.

Keep Smiling,

Even I followed Shibani's recipe, specially the ingredients. I used a small a cake pan, 4.5" pan to bake. The cake did not raise but it tasted fine. I thought it was a little be sweet for my taste. Refrigerated cake might not be that sweet. Have to taste it in a little while.
