Soft and delicious, melt in mouth kind coconut rose sandesh made with fresh chenna coconut and with a hint of rose is a perfect treat to enjoy any festival day.

These coconuts rose sandesh tasted so delicious and were all gone in just two days. The combination of soft paneer, coconut and hint of rose extract makes them a delightful and mouth-watering sweets.

Again for the recipe, I used a 3/4 cup of sugar which was just about ok, I mean it would have tasted better if there was a little more sugar. Anyways that’s what you have to do once you start avoiding any ingredient.

This is the second last recipe of protein-rich dishes for the month-long mega marathon cant believe its already going to be over.
