Today I am sharing how to make chena Murki an Indian Sweet. Indian sweets are incomplete without Bengali sweets. Sweets occupy an important place in the diet of Bengalis and at their social ceremonies. It is an ancient custom among both Hindu and Muslim Bengalis to distribute sweets during festivals. 

The sweets of Bengal are generally made of sweetened cottage cheese (chena), unlike the use of khoa (reduced solidified milk) in Northern India. Some important sweets of Bengal are … Shôndesh, roshogulla, chena ladoo, chum chum etc. etc.

a bengoli preparation chena murki


Paneer (cottage cheese),1/2 inch cubes 250 grams
Sugar 1 cup
Milk 1 tablespoon
Kewra essence or rose essence 2-3 drops
Icing sugar as required
For the syrup, cook the sugar with one cup of water, stirring continuously, till the sugar dissolves. Add the milk. Collect the scum, which rises to the surface with a ladle, and discard. Cook the syrup till it attains a one-string consistency.
Add the cottage cheese and cook till the syrup coats the cubes well. 
Remove from heat, add the kewra or rose essence and mix well. Traditionally kewra essence is used but I love rose fragrance so I use rose essence instead. Keep swirling the pan till the cubes are thickly coated with the syrup and separated from each other.
Arrange in a serving plate and sprinkle liberally with icing sugar. And enjoy your chena murki…
