Summer means Mango is on full-fledged. Anywhere one can surely notice mango, that may be in roadside stalls, supermarkets, backyards and even on roadside trees. Hence noone should miss the chance to enjoy this king fruit, Mango. And being a huge lover of Mango, my pantry always is loaded with varieties of mangoes. Also I never mind to have this fruit at any time of the day 😋
This year, I have already prepared and posted some dishes in my blog using either raw or ripe mangoes are
- Mango Salad (Vegan & Gluten free),
- Aam ka Chunda / Chundo (Gujurati Sweet Mango Pickle),
- Aam Kasundi / Mango Mustard Sauce,
- Minty Mango Iced Tea (Virgin),
- Kairi ka Raita / Raw Mango Raita / Kancha Amba Pachadi.
And also many other before are there too, do check. So before the mango season goes away, one should definitely make use of this fruit.
Well, today’s post is a sweet dessert using mango that too from Bengali cuisine as ‘Stuffed Mango Sandesh‘. Doesn’t it sound interesting ? oh yes, it is. Some days before, we were at a party and there I came across a dessert similar to this where some chocolate sandeshes are rolled with pineapple slices. Oh my goodness, i was just in love with that, they had so beautifully presented those cute sandeshes. As the mango season is going on, so I prepared some mango sandeshes rolled with thinly slices of mangoes. Completely gluten free dessert is this.
The process is quite simple and easy. One can within a few times, prepare these cute looking sandeshes. I always prefer to use homemade chhena rather than store bought ones. Instead of chhena, some paneer can be opted here. As I am using chhena so I just mash with heels of my hand to get a soft texture so that all other ingredients’ll easily incorporated with that. If paneer is used, then i will suggest to take all the ingredients along with paneer in a blender jar and just blend to get a smooth paste.
Rest other procedure is same for both chhena as well as paneer. Mango essence if possible do add in the sandesh, I don’t have so added cardamom powder. These stuffed mango sandeshes are perfect eye-catchy dessert option in any party or gathering celebration. After preparing, these can be stored in refrigerator and also taste great if served cold ! Some more sandesh from my blog are Pista Sandesh, Strawberry Sandesh. Do check.
