ABOUT Bhapa Sondesh (Steamed Sandesh) RECIPE

Sondesh is a very popular Bengali sweet which is prepared from homemade chenna / paneer made out of fresh full cream milk. How about a quicker method? This is the steamed version and I prepared it out of 'Amul Paneer'. It cuts down a lot of your precious time. I usually prepare this sweet when I want something typically Bengali as I miss Kolkata Sondesh. Those were the days when I used to savour it quite often during my stay in the city. Sweet memories.
