Indian Dessert with Mango


Sandesh is just a soft fudge made with Indian cottage cheese or paneer. It can be flavored with Kesar Sandesh, Nolen Gurer Sandesh, Chocolate Sandesh, Rose Sandesh, Jaggery Sandesh and many more that you can choose from your favorite ingredient or make it simple without any essence. You can make end number of flavours into it. It is pronounced like "SONDESH

I have made mango sandesh in two ways one if barfi style and one is flat ladoo style.. both come super soft and fantastic. For barfi, i have set it in fridge for almost 4 hours and for other one I have just cool the mixture in fridge for 1 hour till it firm then I made flat ladoo.

Before mango season over, I want to enjoy mango in my dishes so I can remember the taste till next season. 😁  I gave this mangoish twist to my Sandesh, and that came out super creamy and soft. It’s really easy to make!

The thing that should be kept in mind while making Sandesh is to mash the Chenna or Paneer nicely with the heels of your hands till it is smooth and silky.
