Cooking Process:

1. Curdling the Milk and Making Chana:

  • Mix lemon juice with ½ cup of lukewarm water.
  • Bring the milk to a boil in a deep-bottomed vessel for 7-8 minutes over medium flame.
  • Turn off the flame and mix the lemon water with the milk, stirring with a spatula.
  • Allow the milk to separate into chana (cottage cheese) and water. Cover and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • Strain the water from the chana without washing it.
  • Wrap the chana in a muslin cloth, place it flat, and apply weight for 10 minutes to remove excess water.
  • Knead the chana for 7-8 minutes until smooth.
  • Add grated date palm jaggery to the kneaded chana, knead again, and cook on low flame for 8-9 minutes.
  • Stir until the mixture leaves the edges of the pan.
  • Allow the Sandesh mixture to rest for 5 minutes.

2. Shaping the Sandesh:

  • Divide the mixture into 16-20 parts.
  • Rub a little ghee on the sandesh molds, shape the sandesh, and place it in the mold.
  • Top each mold with chopped pistachios.
  • Carefully remove the delicate Nolen Gurer Sandesh from the mold or shape it into a ball if molds are not available.
  • Serve at room temperature or refrigerate for 2-3 days in an airtight container.
