Bengali Sandesh

Bengali sweets are famous all over..speciality being maximum sweets are made up of cottage cheese or chena/paneer.Sandesh is one of the most famous sweets.Jaggery can be used in place of sugar and if the special palm sugar or dates jaggery is just tastes divine :-) and is known as nolen gurer sandesh ..shall post it sometime :P

Ingredients -
Milk (500ml)
powdered sugar around 1 cup
Lemon juice (2 tspns)
Cardamom powder
ghee for greasing the plate/mould

Method -
Heat the milk.As it comes to a boil add the lemon juice and make the chena or paneer.
Knead the paneer well.
Heat a non-stick pan.
Mix in the sugar into the chena,knead again and put the chena-sugar mixture on the pan.
Stir it constantly for about 2-3 minutes.Add the cardamom powder and turn off the flame.
Do not keep the mixture on the pan for too long because the chena will get hard.
In case that happens add a little milk to it to get the desired consistency.
Grease a plate with ghee.Pour this mixture on the plate and let it cool.
You can also place the mixture into moulds of various shapes.
Once it cools Sandesh is ready :-)
