- In a deep pan, bring the cow's milk to a boil. Lower the heat and add the whey. Stir continuously till the milk curdles completely.
- Strain through a piece of muslin and immediately place the muslin potli on ice to stop the cooking process. Squeeze to remove the excess moisture.
- Transfer the paneer to a plate and knead it with the heel of your hand till it is smooth. Add sugar and continue to mash till all the sugar has been incorporated.
- Divide the paneer mixture into 16 equal portions and shape into balls. Fix toothpicks into the centre of each ball.
- Melt grated chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave oven for 30 seconds. Remove and add the cocoa butter. Temper the chocolate till it reaches room temperature. Dip the paneer balls in the melted chocolate and sprinkle vermicelli generously to cover the balls. Arrange the lollies in a mug and place them in a refrigerator till the chocolate sets.
- Serve chilled.
