Sandesh | Bengali Sweet Recipe | Dessert Recipe!

After my previous post on How to make  Fresh Homemade Chena/Paneer  I prepared this sweet. Sandesh is a Bengali sweet. Its very delicious and tasty. My bengali friend here also had told me the method. I use to eat a lot of Bengali sweets when in Bangalore from K C Das and Blue Bell, it will be really delicious. No one can eat just one:-)

Chena/Fresh Paneer- 2 to 3 cups(It should be definetly homemade and fresh) Click here for recipe
Sugar - 1 cup
Cardamom powder - 2 pinches.
Milk - 1 tablespoon

Grind Sugar  to fine powder once and add chena and grind it. Heat a kadai and add this.

Heat a vessel and keep stirring.

Keep Stirring till its little dry and water is absorbed.

Off the stove at this consistency. Allow it to cool.

Add milk and knead. Make small balls or desired shapes.

Preparation Method
Powder sugar in mixie. Add the fresh chena to it and grind to smooth paste.
Heat a kadai, add the ground mixture. Keep stirring until its thick and slight colour change. Add the cardamom powder and mix. Off the stove.
Allow it to cool.
Once its cool add 1 tblspn milk and kneed to smooth dough.
Slowly take small portions and make small balls or into any shape you need. Store in air tight container.
Let it sit for an hour in fridge before your serving.

I could make around 15 nos of medium size sweet.

Shelf life - This will stay for about a week.

Sandesh is ready to serve.

Serve it chilled.
