Directions

How to Make Bengali Sweet Sandesh Recipe

step 1

STEP 01

In a thick bottom pan add 1 litre full fat milk and bring it to a boil.

step 2

STEP 01

Add 2 tbsp lemon juice and stir it in. The milk will curdle. Add more lemon juice if required. Allow the milk to boil till the milk solids have separated from the whey. Turn off the heat.

step 3

STEP 01

Using a muslin cloth strain off the whey. The solid mass left in the cloth is called chenna.

step 4

STEP 01

Pour cold water over the chenna to rinse out the lemon flavour.

step 5

STEP 01

Gather all the ends of the cloth together and squeeze out all the excess water.

step 6

STEP 01

Hang the cloth with the chenna for about 30 minutes till it drains off most of the water.

step 7

STEP 01

Next place the ball of chenna in a mixing bowl and break it up. Knead it to make a smooth texture free of lumps.

step 8

STEP 01

After about 10 minutes of kneading add ½ cup powdered sugar and continue to knead till fully combined.

step 9

STEP 01

Place the sweetened chenna in a pan on very low flame and cook it for 4 to 5 minutes stirring continuously. Do not cook it for too long as the moisture will evaporate and the mixture will become dry and crumbly.

step 10

STEP 01

Add ¼ tsp cardamom powder and mix well.

step 11

STEP 01

Transfer the mixture to a plate, spread it out and allow it to cool.

step 12

STEP 01

When cooled, take a small portion and roll into a ball shape between the palms, flatten slightly to make a round disc. Press the centre to make a dent and place a piece or two of chopped pistachio in the center. Sandesh is ready. Refrigerate it and serve fresh.
