Nolen Gurer Sandesh


Milk – 1 ½ ltr
Lemon juice
Nolenn gur – ½ cup
Any dry fruits

How to make nolen gurer sandesh:

In a vessel heat milk and then add a few drops of lemon juice. As a result the milk will break and turn into chenna (paneer) and will look like spongy lumps. Then strain water and keep chenna in a bowl. Now add nolen gur and mix it very well to make a smooth creamy texture. Now put it in a non-stick pan and stir in a low flame for 5 minutes. When the dough is separated from the pan remove it from flame. Now keep it in a plate. The dough should be used immediately to make various shapes. Use dry fruits to garnish.
