Makhmali Sondesh


This recipe happened by mistake last week. I know what you are thinking!! But I will never regret about this mistake because it turned out delicious. Let me tell you the story first. Last week I took an attempt to make 'sondesh', but the taste came out very less sweeter. I got panicked and immediately called my only life saver 'mom'. She adviced me to follow the process of 'rosmalai'. In rosmalai we put 'rosogolla' in kheer and in my case, I put 'sondesh' in kheer. Magically it became a new, frequently demanded dessert to my family. 'Makhmali' means very soft in hindi. 'Sondesh' will become very soft after adding it in kheer, that's why I named it 'makhmali sondesh'.

Makhmali Sondesh


  • For Sondesh
  • 1 liter full fat milk.
  • 2 lemons.
  • 1 Tablespoon vinegar.
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar.
  • 2 Tablespoons milk powder.
  • 2 Teaspoons ghee / clarified butter.
  • For Kheer
  • 4 cups of full fat milk.
  • half cup of condensed milk.
  • 5 Tablespoons of heavy cream.
  • Few drops of vanilla essence.


  • Boil 1 liter milk in a vessel. When it starts boiling add the juices of 2 lemon and vinegar. Turn off the heat.
  • Milk will curdle and drain the curdled milk in a maslin cloth.
  • Now wash the curdled milk / chana very well in cold water. It will reduce the acidness.
  • Squeeze all the water from the chana. You can also put a weight on the chana for 30 minutes. The water will drain out.
  • Then take the chana in a plate and knead it with your palm for 5 minutes.
  • Add the sugar, milk powder and 1 Teaspoon ghee in the chana. Again knead it for 5 minutes. The texture will become smooth.
  • Greece a microwave proof bowl with 1 Teaspoon ghee.
  • Now place the chana in that bowl and spread it like a layer.
  • Put it in microwave for 3 minutes. After it comes down to room temperature let it rest for another 15 minutes in fridge.
  • Then cut it in small cubes and you will get your 'sondesh'.
  • For the kheer boil 4 cups of milk in a pan. Keep stirring the milk. When it will reduce to half add condensed milk. Mix it very well for 10 minutes.
  • Then add the heavy cream. Again mix it. When the kheer become thick add those sondesh into it. Cook this for another 4 minutes.
