Gayatri garu, I tried your recipe on Sandesh. The outcome was not
perfect like yours. I errd at two stages, one I blended all the
ingredients at one go instead of initially grating the paneer and then
adding the remaining ingredients. Also, I kept ready all the ingredients
in the blender jar and completed the blending after leaving it idle for
2 1/2 hrs. The result was, the mixture after blending was highly fluid
(unlike yours in the video which looked like a paste), similar to
thickened milk. Once I started cooking it on the stove the mixture
thickened and came to the right thick consistency and I could easily
roll it into balls on cooling down but the taste and texture did not
seem like the sandesh we buy in the sweet shops. Though the taste was
not similar to the sweet shop like Sandesh, it did taste good and my
little son enjoyed eating it most of it.
Do you think the two errors
may have caused this? I plan to cook this again, please do clarify.

Today I made Sandesh EXACTLY the way you
depicted….the TASTE was excellent….but there is a slight
problem….inspite of cooking the mixture for even upto six minutes in
simmering on the gas stove, I could not get the "JUST-RIGHT" hardness
of the khoya…so the Sandesh's were slightly TOO SOFT and NOT THE
"NOROM-PAK" hardness the authentic Bengali dish calls for…..
So, would YOU recommend:
1) Some refrigeration before putting into the Sandesh mould?
2) Kneading the khoya in the kneader?
Feel we could get MORE ACCURATE results by microwaving at (say)
60%power and keep stirring and checking every minute for the correct
YOUR further views / suggestions to FINE-TUNE your
EXCELLENT RECIPES would indeed make the day for hundreds of your
readers like myself!/ Best Regards/ Lakhan
