Nutella Sandesh

                                                            
After the success of Nutella Filled Gulab Jamun I got encouragement to blend my favorite nutella again with a sweet dessert. So here I've added nutella in Bengalis most famous sweet Sandesh. 


Yields: about 12-14 fresh cheese sandesh, Cooking time: 15-20 minutes


Ingredients:
1 ltr Full cream milk
2 tbsp Lemon juice
3/4 cup Powdered sugar
Pinch of Cardamom powder
1 1/2 tbsp Nutella


Besides this you will need a cheese cloth and a wooden spatula.


Method:
In order to prepare paneer cottage cheese the most important method is to heat  milk on medium flame and stir continuously so that the milk doesn't get burnt at the bottom . After the first boil add lemon juice. Use the other hand to gently move the wooden spatula and stir the milk continuously. Now you will see the milk splitting  big clumps of cheese floating around in lots of whey. Switch off the burner immediately. Strain the mixture with a clean cheese cloth and hold the assemble cheese in muslin cloth under running water for a minute and now squeeze out the excess water (this will remove the sourness).
Hang the cheese cloth for 1/2 hour so that all the whey is drained out.


Now to proceed further knead the cottage cheese well with your fingers till you get a smooth mixture (this will take about 7-8 minutes). Now add powdered sugar and pinch of cardamom powder and knead well to make a smooth round dough without any crumbly look. Now heat a non stick pan and cook this on low heat, stirring continuously for few minutes. Initially it will leave water because of the presence of sugar in chenna but don't panic this will evaporate soon. As soon as the water dries up switch off the burner. This is a very crucial stage as cooking this mixture for too long will dry the content and the cheese should not be too moist or sticky also.
Now immediately transfer this paak to a dry wooden tray and knead well when it is warm. Now this paak is ready to be mold in your desired shape. Divide the paak/mixture into equal parts if you want to make just like how is appears in the pictures. Gently roll the walnut size mixture between the palms of your hands and make small thumb impression at the center. Fill it with nutella and let it set in the refrigerator for 2 hours and then serve. I don't think you want to know how to store these sandesh as these will be vanished in minutes :-)
