Nutella Sondesh ~ Combining my love for Nutella and my favorite Bengali sweet!
Serving: 12 pieces
Time: 1 hour

– 1/2 gallon Whole Milk
– 2 Lemons, cut in halves
– 1 tablespoon + 1 liter water or more
– 1/4 cup granulated Sugar, more more

1. Heat milk in a non-stick saucepan, over medium-high flame. Keep stirring continuously.
2. Cut lemons in half and squeeze the juice into a bowl. Add one tablespoon of water. Add lemon-water solution to the milk. It will start coagulating within 3 to 4 seconds.
3. Set a strainer over a mixing bowl and line it with a cheese cloth. Carefully pour the milk curds into the strainer. Add 2 cups (or more) of water to the cheese and wash it well.
4. Gather the four corners of the cheesecloth in your hand and gently squeeze to remove the excess whey.
5. Set it aside in a big mixing bowl. With the palm of your hands, knead the cheese for 4 to 5 minutes. It should have a fine consistency. Add sugar and knead for an another 4 to 5 minutes to form a dough.
6. In a non-stick pan. over medium-low heat, heat the cheese dough. With a
spatula, stir it for 4 to 5 minutes. Take it off the heat.
7. When it’s cool enough to handle, shape them like a ball (donβ€˜t forget to grease your hands with ghee), or put in a rectangular dish and press down to smooth layer of approx. 1-inch thick or put them into molds of your choice.
8. Chill for 30 minutes.
9. Remove from refrigerator and dust cocoa powder on all the pieces.
10. Warm nutella in microwave for 30 seconds – just so that it’s easy to use. Press the centre of sondesh with your thumb and add nutella in the centre. Happy gorging! πŸ˜ƒ
