My Notes:

  • Adjust the quantity of sugar syrup for each serving according to your preference.But usually paneer soda is less sweet.
  • You can refrigerate and store this rose syrup for about 2 weeks.
  • The syrup is not thick its runny so dont heat for more time,just when it starts to turn stickyu switch off.
  • Make sure you cool down the sugar syrup and only then add rose essence.
  • I used Kinley plain soda water and rose essence brand is bush, both is easily available at Nilgiris.
  • Use good quality essence as its the main ingredient which gives flavour to this drink.

  11. This is something that we keep having when we travel to Kerala during the summer days!!! so refreshing... by the way, isn't it called "Panineer Soda"? Because Panineer is rosewater in Malayalam... :)

  13. Hi Sharmi,

    i think it should be panineer (rose water) soda and not paneer soda. Anyways, great recipe and tempting clicks.

  14. Very well prepared and my childhood favourite too.

  15. I'm really curious to know what pot you were boiling your sugar syrup in. It looks like freeze-proof break-proof glass - if it is doesn't break on fire, that's great! Can you tell me what you use there?

    1. It is Borosil Gourmetwares which is glass stove and oven proof cook and storeware.If you are interested pls check my giveaway post for more details.
