sandesh sweetsandesh recipe | sandesh sweet | bengali sweet sondesh recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. perhaps one of the simpler bengali sweet recipe which has the similar colour and texture but on a dry side. sandesh sweet is also known as pranahara in bangladesh but would be softer as compared to the indian version. the other variation also include cream based which is popularly known as malai sandesh or malai sondesh recipe.

me and my family has always been a great fan of bengali sweets recipe and i particularly love rasmalai and sandesh sweet recipe. whenever i prepare for any curries or for snack i ensure to separate a small portion of chhena to prepare sweet sondesh recipe. however my husband loves rasgulla though and we always have heated argument about its popularity. i agree rasgulla is hugely popular not just in india but all over the world. i guess the only down side with the sandesh sweet is it prepared dry unlike the former one.

sandesh recipewhile the recipe for bengali sandesh sweet recipe is extremely simple, yet i would like share some tips and recommendations. firstly, and more importantly always use full cream milk for any bengali milk based sweet recipe. otherwise chhena or paneer would not be thick and you would not be able to shape it. secondly, you can also use store bought paneer for this recipe, but ensure it to be on softer side. lastly, you can prepare flavoured sondesh recipe by adding chocolate, mango pulp, vanilla and even coffee flavoured recipe.

notes:

  • firstly, store the sandesh in refrigerator for a week and serve as required.
  • also if unable to make balls, its mainly because of overcooking paneer, loosing all moisture. so blend the mixture till it turns smooth and later prepare balls.
  • furthermore, add in saffron thread or rose water to make it more flavourful.
  • finally, cook the sandesh on low flame, else the paneer will get burnt.
