Sondesh/ Bengali Sweet- Sandesh

Today is day of celebration i.e. Diwali.  So first of all I want to say HAPPY DIWALI to all my friends and followers. In Blogging Marathon #22 under West Bengal Theme, I choose Bengali Sweet “Sondesh”.
Sandesh can be prepared with cottage cheese with different flavors for unusual taste. Under this recipe, Bengal's super hit sweet, made with sweetened cottage cheese and flavored with cardamom and pistachios.

Preparation Time: 25 Minutes and Chilling time
Cooking Time: 0 Minutes
Serving: 4-5 pieces
400ml full cream milk
Half lemon
1 tsp. Elachi powder/ Green cardamom powder
3 tbsps.  Powdered sugar up to taste
Pistachios, halves


Boil the milk and add half lemon juice.
Wrap the curds in a muslin cloth, rinse under cold water, and squeeze well.
Once the paneer is drained completely, knead the paneer for 5-10 minutes just like dough; now add powdered sugar and cardamom powder for good flavour. Knead well again.
Now give proper shape in oval or round shape, you can use mould for different shape.
Garnish with cardamom powder and pista on the top of sondesh and place in freeze till to serving time. Now Bengali sweet Sondesh is ready to serve.
