Fruit Sandesh is a classic Bengali dessert, simply relished and flavored with fresh and healthy fruits. I generally make this Bengali Sandesh at home and add my favorite fruit flavors into it, such as cherry, strawberry or sometimes orange and pineapple.
Though It’s a Bengali Sweet Dish, but enjoyed by everyone on special Indian Festivals. A light, beautiful and pearl bright desert is just made with fresh homemade paneer (Indian cottage cheese). Creamy and yummy sandesh (Bengali classic) is topped with fresh fruits and in west Bengal it is famous as a Bengali Fruit Sondesh Recipe.
Today I have given a tough of Pineapple and Cherry to my Fruit Sandesh, because only these fruits were available at home. You can use your favorite fruits for flavoring it, such as Oranges, Apples or even Strawberries.
