Vanila Sandesh

'Sandesh' is a typical Bengali Sweet. Basically it made with Milk, Chena , Sugar and sometime with Jaggery . Almost every sweet shop in Kolkata you will get lots of variety of Sandesh. Not only in Kolkata, other parts of India also has different kind of Sandesh or Sweet. Today I prepared Vanilla Sandesh . I used to have this Sweet from our nearest sweet Shop almost every day in my childhood. So it's a kind of nostalgic feeling also while preparing this.
