Rose Sandesh

Although Sandesh, one of the all-time favourite amongst Bengali Sweets , can be made quickly using readymade paneer, nothing can match the texture you get with soft, homemade paneer. And, all it will take you is a few minutes longer to curdle the milk and strain it. Here, we show you how to make Rose Sandesh from scratch. You will be overwhelmed by the melt-in-the-mouth texture and the aesthetic aroma of rose that engulfs this delicious mithai.
