Chenna Recipes

How to make Chenna

Chenna is made by curdling full-fat milk and draining the extra moisture. Addition of sour agents like vinegar or lemon juice result into separation of whey from milk.

ChennaChenna

If you are lazy to make chenna at home, you can use cottage cheese or paneer, which is used extensively in Indian cuisine to make everything from subzis to pulaos and is a handy ingredient in the preparation of sweets as well.

Paneer imparts not just softness but a very interesting, crumbly mouth-feel, which lands quite richly on the palate. You can simply blend paneer in a mixer grinder or mix it using your palm to give the required texture.

Indian Sweet Recipes using Chenna

Chenna is extensively used in preparation of an array of Bengali sweets like Sandesh, Chum Chum, Rasgulla, Rasmalai. You can even stuff rasmalai to make Fresh Fruits Stuffed Rasmalai a dessert beyond comparison, a creation that has to be experienced to be understood!

The rich, milky flavour of succulent rasmalai is complemented beautifully by a fruity stuffing, and enhanced further by a topping of masala milk.

Sandesh is made by combining powdered sugar and different flavours and essences. You can try your hands on making simple Sandesh made by mixing chenna or sugar or flavored Sandesh like the rose Sandesh, pineapple Sandesh, Chocolate Sandesh. To enhance the appearance, you can stack chenna with colorful fruits in a glass to make Layered Fruit Sandesh .
