Serves: 
6

Preparation Time: 
30 minutes
Cooking Time: 
20 minutes

Complexity: 
Easy


Ingredients: 
500 gm Full cream milk
1 cup Mango pulp
3 tablespoons of Sugar
1/2 teaspoon of lime juice or a pinch of citric acid
Chopped Pistachios for garnishing
Directions: 
Take milk in a pan and bring it to boil .
Mix in the lime juice or citric acid and stir till the milk curdles and the whey separates.
Turn off the flame and let it stand for 2 minutes .
Strain the mixture into the muslin clothes . Take the channa in a plate and knead it with the heel of palm for 5 - 10 minutes to get a smooth and doughy texture .
In a non stick pan add the mango pulp and mix in the sugar .
Add the kneaded chenna to it and on low flame keep stirrings continuously to avoid burning the chenna .
The chenna will gradually change colour as it gets mixed with the mango pulp and will become lumpy . This should take 10-15 minutes of continuous stirring .
Removed from heat and allow to cool enough to handle with hands .
Now simply shape them in round balls and press the top with a finger tip to place the chopped pistachios .........
Footnotes: 
If u have the sandesh mould then grease them and press it on the mould gently , smoothen the edges and take it out of the mould from one end very carefully .
