Pista Sandesh

My Culinary Saga

IMG_9247(1)

I have ‘Sandesh‘ for you today. Sandesh, translated in Hindi literally means ‘news’ or a ‘message’. Today’s post is definitely not just a message – it is a sweet message. 🙂  If you ask a Bengali what Sandesh is, they will tell you it is an extremely delicious, melt in the mouth, milk based dessert.  I couldn’t agree any less. It is an inherent part of Bengali culture and festivity. Sandesh over the years has truly become a ‘messenger’ of auspicious news creating an atmosphere of celebration and jubilation in Bengali households. Did I forget to mention how easy it is to make?

Like most Bengali sweets, the base for this sweet is also curdled milk (chenna/paneer) and a sweetener. You may add any flavouring as your heart desires. I have kept it simple using almost the same ingredients I used for Malai Peda recipe.
