1 tsporange juice
2 drops orange essence (optional)
2 drops orange colour (optional)

4 almonds (badam), blanched and sliced
4 blanched and sliced pistachios
Knead the paneer thoroughly with the sugar.
Add the orange juice, orange essence and orange color and mix well.
Spread half this mixture to form a 125 mm. square on a plate or dish.
Arrange half the orange segments on top.
