SANDESH RECIPE
   Sandesh is  an easy sweet made with home made paneer. Long-time i was planning to make this sandesh and I followed the method from here.
Check out my

INGREDIENTS:

MILK 1 LITRE
LEMON JUICE 2 TBLSP
SUGAR 1/4 CUP
MILK MASALA A PINCH(OPTIONAL)
CARDAMOM POWDER A PINCH
PISTACHIO FEW (FOR GARNISHING)

sandesh
METHOD:

  • Bring the milk to boil and once it is done simmer the flame and add the lemon juice.
  • while adding the lemon juice dilute this with 1-2 tblsp of water.
  • When the milk starts curdling and the water separates switch off the flame and immediately strain this in a muslin cloth and wash it nicely to get rid of the sour taste of lemon.

  • Squeeze out the excess water. Now the fresh paneer is formed.
  • Making it into a smooth dough by nicely kneading with your hands for 4-5 mins.
  • Since in the original recipe it has given the option of doing this in a food processor, i put the paneer in the mixie along with sugar and milk masala powder. If using cardamom powder add at this stage.
  • Run the mixie for few seconds. This will become smooth and become a paste. This may be watery, do not panic.

  • Transfer this mixture to a pan and saute this nicely for 2 mins in a medium flame or till you reach the right consistency.
  • Switch off the flame.

  • Transfer this to a plate and knead well for a minute.
  • At this stage when you make a ball, it should be made without any cracks.IMG_6555
  • Go ahead of making equal sized balls and slightly flatten this.
  • Garnish with pistachios.

Wow!! You're very patient to make paneer from scratch and follow it with this sweet. I'm sure Sandesh would have tasted heavenly for the same reason 🙂

Wishing you and your family a very happy Deepavali 🙂
