Rhomesecret Recipe: Ice Cream Sandesh

Savour the delicious ICE CREAM SANDESH which will tantalize your taste buds with the exotic Bengali flavour as it did mine. I was inspired by Sandesh from neighborhood MISHTI ( Sweet shop in Bengali) which distinctly reminds me of my childhood. This recipe is a blend of the authentic Bengali sweet with a modern twist.
