ABOUT Nolen Gurer Korapak Sandesh RECIPE

Sandesh is a very popular Bengali sweet that is a must-have during my yearly visit to Kolkata. As it is unavailable here, I try to make it in my kitchen on few special occasions. This one is particularly made of nolen gur (date palm jaggery) in sandesh moulds that I bought along with me. Country.....UAE.

Ingredients Serving: 6

  1. 1 litre milk
  2. juice of a lime mixed with some water
  3. 1/2 cup nolen gur (Date Palm Jaggery), grated
  4. 1/4 tsp. cardamom powder
  5. little ghee to grease the moulds


  1. Bring the milk to a boil. Add the lime water and keep stirring. The milk will start to curdle. Transfer onto a muslin cloth and place it on a colander so as to drain all the water.

  3. Keep stirring continuously on a low flame till it becomes thick and the colour changes to a little dark colour. Grease the moulds with some ghee.
  4. Take a small portion of the paneer-jaggery mix and place on a mould by gently pressing it. Slowly demould it and place them on a serving plate.
  5. Make similar sandesh following the same method. Serve as and when required or as an after-meal dessert.
