Blogging Marathon# 40: Week 3/ Day 3
Theme: Unused BM# 39 posts
Dish: Malai Sandesh
For the final day of this week’s marathon, I made a simple, yet decadent dessert from West Bengal. When I jotting down dishes for Bengal, I was only thinking about sweets/ desserts since it was going to be the last day of the mega marathon and also Bengali dessert are to die for. I had about 4~5 desserts that I really wanted to try. After making Lobong Lathika and this Malai Sandesh, I still have couple more that I really really want to make some time soon.
Another reason for posting a sweet today is Cook’s Hideout completed 8 years of blogging this month. After becoming a stay-at-home-mom, blogging and my blog buddies have become my real friends. Blogging gives me something to think about other than household chores and my virtual friends are always there to listen to anything. Big thanks to them for inspiring, motivating and encouraging me to keep blogging. Also thanks to my family for their complete support without which Cook’s hideout would not even be possible.
Coming back to Malai Sandesh, I actually found this recipe online by chance. I had a large container of ricotta cheese that needed to be used up and at that time I still hadn’t finalized the dish for Bengal, so a google search led me to this recipe. I was completely sold when I saw the pictures and made this dish right away.
Using store bought ricotta makes this dish a breeze to make. I know this is an instant version, but it definitely satisfies your sweet craving without much effort. It is also a great dessert to make ahead for a party.
