Sandesh (Sondesh, Shondesh) is a Bengali sweet that's made from fresh chenna. Its a simple and delicious mix of fresh crumbled paneer and powdered sugar. This mouth watering Bengali sweet recipe requires just 3 ingredients and takes only 20-25 minutes to prepare.


1. Bring milk to a boil. Add lime juice. Switch off the gas as soon as the milk cuddles.
