Dear Friends Happy Diwali !
May this festival of lights bring in loads of happiness and joy to all of you. On this festive happy occasion I made this popular delicious sweet... Sandesh
Fresh Paneer or Ricotta Cheese- 2 cup
Sugar- 1 1/2 cup
Cardamon- 1/2 tsp
Ghee- 1 tsp (optional)
You can use fresh home made paneer or ricotta cheese for this recipe. I used ricotta cheese. Bring it to room temperature and knead it like a dough till it becomes smooth. Add in sugar and continue to knead for another minute.Mix in cardamon powder. Heat a non stick pan and add this mixture and cook in a low heat. The sugar will dissolve . Continue to stir for 4-5 minutes till it becomes one mass and starts leaving the sides of the pan.Add a tsp of ghee if you feel that it is sticking to bottom. Do not allow it to change color or cook paneer too much, It should remain a little soft. Let it cool down and then again knead as you did in the beginning. Make small ball and garnish with nuts or sweetened fruits. Here I have used nuts and cherries.
Hope you will all enjoy...
