The ever-popular Bengali favourite, now in a quick and exciting form! While sandesh normally takes a long time to prepare, this version made with grated paneer will be ready in a jiffy, and thanks to the addition of another all-time favourite, the King of Fruits, it becomes much tastier too. You might wonder if the rose essence will be noticed despite the strong aroma and flavour of mangoes, but make sure you add it because it plays a key role in imparting a classic richness to the Quick Mango Sandesh.

  1. Each variety of mango, whether alphonso, dussheri, kesar or badami, has its own special flavour and texture. Some like this and some like that. However, to make desserts always go for alphonso mangoes only, as they have the perfect flavour, consistency and sweetness for this purpose.
