MM Mithaiwala - Recipe Pista Sandesh


  • Chhana (made from 1/2 gallon of milk).
  • Powdered Sugar (3/4 cup, or to taste).
  • Small Cardamom Powder (1 tsp). 
  • Pistachios (25 unsalted, 18 whole and rest sliced).
  • Small muffin cups (15-18, optional) 


-Make fresh Chhana from 1/2 gallon of milk and press it with something heavy for 45 minutes, so that all the water comes out.

-In a large bowl, start mashing it with your hands until smooth and a ball is formed. The heat from your hand will help it in becoming soft and smooth, which is very important since we are not cooking anything.

-Now add powdered sugar and cardamom powder. Mix well with hands.

-Divide the prepared Chhana into 15-18 equal portions.

-Roll one of them between the palms of your hands and flatten it.

-Put one pistachio in the middle and roll into a ball.

-Put each one of them in the muffin cups and garnish with sliced pistachios.

-Let them set for 3-4 our in the freeze, before serving.
