Sandesh/ Kacha Golla

Ingredients to make Sandesh/ Kacha Golla

  • Whole Milk- 1/2 gallon (around 2 litres)
  • sugar- 3/4th cup
  • cardamom powder- made from 4 pods
  • lemon juice - 2 tbsp
  • pistachios - few crushed, for decoration

How to make Sandesh/ Kacha Golla

  1. Make the paneer/chenna by splitting milk with lemon juice (check blog for the process).
  2. Take out the milk solids and knead all the grains with the heel of your palms till the whole milk solid becomes soft and smooth.
  3. Now heat the milk solid in a non-stick pan for 5-6 minutes until the raw smell and taste goes away. Make sure to keep the heat to the lowest. Add cardamom powder and give it a few more stirs, then remove from the flame, add sugar and knead again till its soft.
  4. Apply oil/ ghee to grease the serving platter. Grease any pretty looking mold (I used vegetable oil). Take a small portion of the knead milk solid.
  5. Press inside the mold until impressions transfer. Remove from the mold carefully without damaging the shape and keep it directly on the platter you are going to serve in.
  6. Shape the entire milk solid in desired shapes and sizes. Repeat it lightly by greasing the mold for all portions. This ensures neat shapes and makes demolding easy.
  7. Sprinkle some crushed/ finely chopped pistachios on each sandesh. Serve immediately or slightly chilled.
