How to make Bhapa Sandesh/ Steamed Sandesh/ Steamed Cottage Cheese Fudge

  1. Boil the milk in a big pan and stir continuously. Once the milk starts boiling, lower the flame.

  3. Pour the chena over a soft cheese cloth and let all the water drain away. Now put this cloth with the chenna under running cold water for 2-3 minutes to help removing the smell of lemon.
  4. Hang the chenna along with the cloth for 30 minutes or till all the water drains away. Soak the saffron in the hot milk.
  5. Now transfer the chenna to a large plate and the sugar and start kneading with the back of your palm till it gets soft and smooth, add the cardamom powder. Again knead it nicely, until you feel oil on your palm.
  6. Take a container; line it with parchment paper. Pour the cheese mixture into the container, sprinkle the saffron strands and cover it with aluminum foil and put it on a steamer and let it cook on low to medium heat for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  7. Once it is done, let it cool down first at room temperature. Then put the container into the refrigerator for half an hour and serve .
  8. Cut it into the pieces. Bhapa Sandesh is ready. Sprinkle or decorated with some dry fruits and serve!
