Bengali Sandesh (Indian Cheese Fudge)


Sandesh, shondesh, sandes are some of the names by which this mithai is called. Recipe of sandesh is very easy and it can be made within no time. Although sandesh is a Bengali mithai, it is loved in other parts of India as well. This soft mithai never failed to satisfy my sweet tooth.
Recipe of sandesh
Makes about 20 sandesh
2 cups chenna (cottage cheese)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp cardamom (elaichi) powder
1. Add sugar to the chenna and knead.
2. Place the mixture in a kadhai/wok and cook stirring constantly, on a low heat. Cook for 5-6 minutes. Consistency of the mixture should be that of the very soft dough, neither too dry nor too moist.
3. Remove from heat and mix gently till it cools down a bit.
4. Divide into equal portions and make balls out of it. Garnish with cardamom powder and place in fridge. Serve sandesh chilled.
