Stuffed Litchi Sandesh

A meal without dessert is definitely not complete.
Featuring Stuffed Litchi Sandesh

I’ve always loved Sandesh, the beloved dessert from Bengal. I decided to add my own twist with ‘Litchi’ the season’s favourite and created Stuffed Litchi Sandesh. This unique combination brings together the creamy richness of traditional Sandesh and the refreshing sweetness of litchis.

Treat yourself to this exquisite dessert and savour the blend of tradition and innovation in every bite.

Preparing this dessert is a breeze. Simply hollow out fresh litchis and fill them with a luscious Sandesh mixture. The result? A delightful fusion of flavours that promises to satisfy your sweet craving.
