રુડે ગરબે રમે છે દેવી અંબિકા રે…


Paneer made from 4 cups of full fat or low fat milk (2%)

3/4 cup powdered sugar

7-8 strands of good quality saffron mixed with 1 table spoon of hot milk

1/2 a drop of rose essence (optional)

1. Drain the freshly made paneer of all water by wringing it in a cheese cloth.

2. Knead the paneer with soft hand for 8-10 minutes until it’s very soft. This is an important step.

2. Cook the paneer and sugar in a heavy bottomed pan for ONLY 3-4 minutes. NO MORE THAN THAT.

3. When cool, mix in the rose essence.

4. Make 2 inch balls and  dot them at the top with the saffron milk.

5. Chill in the fridge for 2-3 hours.

    Made Sandesh yesterday and it came out really really well! It was quite easy too. Just made sure to knead the paneer really well just like for rasgullas. Made 2 diff. versions one with Rose ess. and elaichi with kesar and pista on top, just like yours. Other one with kesar elaichi and pista on top. I personally enjoyed your rose flavored one more and thought it looked prettier too 🙂
