Sandesh Recipe: Foodies, here is another Bengal special chenna recipe – Sandesh or Sondesh. This is one of the quickest, easy yet delicious recipes that could be made with only three ingredients. Three important ingredients are chenna, powdered sugar, and cardamom powder.

Rest ingredients, of course, you can use according to your preference and availability of the ingredients. Bengali prefers to make it at different festivals and most importantly at Durga Puja during Navratri. This mouth dissolving sweet has gained the acceptance across country.

You can use different dry fruits like cashew nuts, almonds, pistachio to give it a flavour. In this recipe, I am sharing of saffron flavour.

Here is the recipe of Sandesh. I have already shared the tips for making chenna in the “Spongy Rasgulle” recipe. Please refer to that blog to prepare the chenna.

Sandesh Recipe Ingredients

  • Milk – 1 Litre, full cream
  • Lemon – 2
  • Powdered Sugar – 1/3 Cup, or 50 Grams
  • Cardamom – 5
  • Pistachio – 10-12 Pieces
  • Saffron – 20 – 25 Threads

How to Prepare Sandesh Recipe?

  • Prepare the soft chenna first, by curdling the milk. (Refer Spongy Rasgulla Blog)
  • Make the chenna soft with the help of fingers. Knead it for 5-6 minutes. Keep in mind that it has adequate moisture.
  • Add powdered sugar and saffron in cheena. Mix them well for 2-3 minutes.
  • Take a pan; add this mixture in the pan. Roast it for 3-4 minutes at a very low flame to remove the raw taste of chenna.
  • Do not roast it for a long time; otherwise, the chenna will turn hard.
  • Take the mixture on the plate. Add cardamom powder and mix well.
  • Now take the small portion of the mixture, make a ball with the palm. Press gently and keep it on a plate.
  • Repeat the process, and make the balls of all the mixture.
  • Now garnish it with chopped pistachio. Place them at the center, and push it. So that it can stick to the Sandesh.

To make the perfect recipe, keep in mind that the chenna should be soft and knead well for 5-6 minutes.

Do not roast it for long, in case chenna gets hard, use the grinder to make it soft.

If you prefer the favour of cashew nuts, almonds or pistachio, then take 10-12 pieces of any dry fruit. Blend it to make a powder and add in the chenna.

You can decorate the sweet with choco chips, tutti frutti, or any other dry fruit of your choice.


In conclusion, sweet with chocolate chips aka Sandesh is a classic and beloved dessert that is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. Whether you are baking cookies, making a pie, or whipping up a batch of brownies, the addition of chocolate chips takes your dessert to the next level. With its perfect combination of sweet and rich flavors, it’s no wonder why this classic treat has stood the test of time. So, gather your ingredients and get ready to bake. Your family and friends are sure to love this sweet and indulgent treat.
