Summer in India is synonymous to mango for foodies .... Sandesh is one of the fabulous dessert in Bengal .I make here norom paak aam sandesh , which is really delicious in my family .
Paak means cooked .The kneaded channa which is cooked very little to achieve a melt in mouth is called NOROM PAAK ....
The mango flavor come out just strong enough to confirm its presence......
- Heat milk in a pan and bring it to a boil.
- Add the citric acid solution little by little and mix gently, keep adding the citric water till greenish colour water is seen.
- The milk will curdle and the whey will separate. The whey has to be clear thus indicating the milk has completely curdled.
- Strain all the whey using a clean damp muslin cloth.
- Fold all the 4 sides of the muslin cloth and twirl it gently so that all the whey that is in the milk solids gets evenly drained out.
- Gather the cloth from all 4 sides and squeeze the chenna lightly about 3 to 4 times so that most of the whey gets drained out.
- Take the chenna 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 sugar mix well. Add the chenna and cook on a low flame, while stirring continuously to avoid burring the chenna.
- The chenna will gradually change the colour as it gets mixed with the mango pulp and will become lumpy . This should take 10 -15 minutes of continuous stirring.
- Remove from flame and allow to cool enough to handle with hands.
- Divide the mango-chenna mixture into equal portions.
- Grease the sandesh moulds with ghee.
- Take one mould, place a portion of the mango-chenna mixture on it and gently press and smoothen the edges.
- Repeat with the remaining mango-chenna mixture to make more sandesh.
- Remove the sandesh from the moulds from one end very carefully.
- Garnish with chopped pistachios.
- Refrigerate to chill, then serve.
