Pista Sandesh



Sandesh is a popular moist sweet fudge in the bengali cuisine which has chenna as the main ingredient. This sweet can be made easily at home and requires just two ingredients : chenna and sugar. So with very less ingredients, this yummy sweet dish can be enjoyed. This sweet is perfect for gifting in festivals as it's easy to make if chenna is ready. I have not tasted sandesh anywhere else, so thought of trying for the first time. Instead of making plain sandesh, I just add pistachio powder to make interesting one. So lets go by the detail method of preparation mentioned below.




Preparation Time : 5 mins       |       Cooking Time : 15 mins


Ingredients :


Ingredients
Measurements
250 gram
Sugar (powdered)
7 tbsp
Corn flour
2 tsp
Pistachio (powdered)
1.5 tbsp
Green food color
1-2 drop


Method :
  1. Take chenna in a grinder jar. The chenna used here, can be of homemade or store brought. Add powdered sugar and corn flour. Grind until a smooth texture.
  2. Put the mixture in a non-stick heavy bottomed pan and cook on very low heat for 8-10 mins. Take care not to change the color of the mixture.
  3. When the mixture turns dry and thick, switch of the flame and transfer to a bowl. 
  4. Add powdered pistachios and green color.
  5. Knead very well and make desired shapes. Decorate with pistachios if interested. Keep refrigerated till serving time.



Notes :
  • Adding corn flour is optional.
  • The pista sandesh tastes best when served chilled.
