‘Bhag korey khao”, my Ma would remind us, Sharing is caring. Sometimes it proved to be difficult decision though. Although it was a very very long time back , I have vivid memories of an instance where this advice was too tough to follow. A neighbour had handed me a few delicious chocolates wrapped in very attractive foils. In keeping with Ma’s advice I did bring them home to share with my siblings. In spite of my very best efforts I put all the four chocolates in my mouth, ‘Bon ke ki dibi ?’ What about your sisters? Ma enquired. I extended my hand with the colourful wrapping foils and said “Silver paper’! Trust me I had all good intentions…..
…..Sandesh is a very popular sweet made of milk solids. My blog has a variety of Sandesh recipes that can be found here, here, here and here.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did here.
Recipe : Made 15 pieces
Ricotta cheese 2 cups
Milk Powder 1 cup
Ghee 4 Tbsps
Milk Chocolate 50 grams ( half of a 100 gm slab )
Sugar 1/4 cup
In a non stick pan on medium heat take the ghee, wait for it to melt. Then add the cheese, milk powder, chocolate pieces and sugar. keep stirring gently, until everything starts to come together, about 30 minutes. Put the gas off. When cool enough to handle, knead once and then make one tablespoon portions. You can give them any shape you want, disc, square or press it in a greased silicone mould like I have done here.
I did not add any flavour, as I just anted the chocolate flavour to be dominant. You can add any flavour you prefer.
No need to wait, dig in !
