Watermelon Sandesh 


Watermelon sandesh.

Sandesh is a most popular and delicious dessert of Bengal made with chhena or cottage cheese and sugar or date palm jaggery. 

Sandesh can be made with different flavours. Today I am sharing a very easy recipe with watermelon. Its watermelon season so one more experiment with watermelon 😀

 And if you like watermelon, you will love the taste. 

I have made it very lightly sweet taste with only 4 tablespoon sugar. But you can add one more tablespoon if you like. 

Our this week’s 90th #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is #cheese. This time our fellow blogger Mayuri Patel suggested this theme. Go with any cheese and I have selected cottage cheese.

I have some moulds.

 Now got some more beautiful mouds from my sister in-law Sandhya Gupta. Thank you so much Sandhya 😊

If you don’t have moulds you can roll it like small balls and make laddu shaped sandesh. 

Coming to the recipe of soft textured delicious watermelon sandesh. 

Recipe 
Paneer or cottage cheese – 1 cup 

Sugar – 4 – 5 tablespoon

Milk powder – 2 tablespoon 

Cornflour – 2 tablespoon 

Chopped seedless watermelon – 1/2 cup

Method 


Grind fresh homemade chhena/paneer or cottage cheese, sugar, watermelon pieces, cornflour and milk powder. Make a smooth paste. 

Use full cream milk to make chhena/paneer or cottage cheese. If you have low fat cottage cheese add 1 – 2 tablespoon ghee or clarified butter. 

Heat a heavy bottom or nonstick pan.

Add the ground mixture. Cook on low flame. Stir continuously. 

When the mixture becomes dough like consistency and leave the sides switch off the flame. I didn’t used cardamom or any flavour to retain the watermelon falavour. You can add 1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder if you like. 

Let it cool down. 

Knead well with your palm to make it smooth. 

Make small balls and give shape with any type of moulds. Or if you can roll it with rolling pin use cookie cutters to give shape. Or you can use your chocolate moulds too. 

Keep the sandesh in refrigerator.

Serve chilled. 

Enjoy………

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!
