Mango Sandesh / Aam Sondesh


Can you imagine summer without mango? Mango is one of my favorite fruit with which you can make so many things like Yogurt, Ice cream, Phirni, Kheer, Cake, Cheesecake and what not. This season I made Mango Sondesh, taste and texture came out really good. You can make them with Ricotta cheese also, in that case add some milk powder as ricotta cheese is much thinner than Paneer. Mango pulp is going to give the Sandesh very refreshing and nice aroma. For color I have used saffron. Try this simple recipe in your kitchen and let me know how it turned out for you.


  • 2 liters of full fat milk.
  • 5-6 Tablespoons of yogurt or curd or 4-5 Tablespoons of lemon juice.
  • Smooth pulp of 2 sweet mangoes.
  • Half cup of sugar.
  • 1 Teaspoon of saffron.
  • 2 green cardamom or 1 Teaspoon of cardamom powder.
  • Some chopped pistachio.

Hang the cloth with kitchen tap for 30 minutes. Paneer should not become very dry.
Then take paneer out in a palte and start kneading gently.
After 4-5 minutes paneer will become very smooth. Do not knead it with pressure as paneer will loose its oil.
