If you are even remotely privy to Bengali cuisine, you would know the significance of Sandesh in a typical Bengali fare. A lot of you may argue the whole hype around this chenna-based sweet, when there are so many Bengali sweetmeats, equally flavourful, vying for similar popularity. The argument is strong, but name one Bengali sweet that can be prepared as quickly, with minimal ingredients and efforts that can be a part of everything form a wedding function to a birthday offering to a temple offering? A solidified version of milk and sugar. It is said that Sandesh stemmed from the Portuguese influence in Bengal. Their affinity for cheese, led to Bengalis developing a ricotta-like chenna, which they further moulded into Sandesh.

Here are some of our favourite recipes.
