Pineapple Sandesh, Paneer Mithai with Pineapple

One of the most traditional Indian mithais gets a fruity twist in this recipe. By mixing chopped canned pineapples with this paneer-based sweet, we balance the dairy flavour and introduce an exciting tanginess that makes it appeal to everybody.

We have used canned pineapples to make this, because fresh pineapples might sometimes be a little tart. Refrigerate the Pineapple Sandesh for sometime before serving, so that the sweet sets well. This mithai also tastes best when it is chilled.

When the urge for a sweet treat strikes cook up this Bengali delicacy and to further enhance it top it with Rabri Cream and chopped mixed fruits or chopped mixed nuts .
