Layered Fruit Sandesh

A masterpiece that combines the joy of a fruit salad with the classic appeal of a Bengali delicacy, the Layered Fruit Sandesh is an eye-catching dessert in which layers of sweetened and spiced paneer alternate between layers of fruits like pomegranate, kiwi, apple and pineapple.

The juiciness and naturally vibrant flavours and textures of the fruits contrast beautifully with the mild-sweetness and succulence of the Sandesh. This dainty dessert is also a pretty sight, because of the contrasting colours of the fruits and the paneer.

After arranging the ingredients in glasses, refrigerate them for an hour to allow the layers to set, and then serve immediately.

If you don't like the flavour of kewda, try other flavours like Orange Sandesh or Rose Sandesh .

There is no better combo than orange juice and low fat paneer. Healthy dessert.
