Pista Sandesh

5 from 1 vote

Sandesh is a popular moist sweet fudge in the bengali cuisine which has chenna as the main ingredient. This sweet can be made easily at home and requires just two ingredients : chenna and sugar. So with very less ingredients, this yummy sweet dish can be enjoyed. This sweet is perfect for gifting in festivals as it's easy to make if chenna is ready. I have not tasted sandesh anywhere else, so thought of trying for the first time. Instead of making plain sandesh, I have just added pistachio powder to make interesting one. So lets go by the detail method of preparation mentioned below.
