This is an example of an Indian dessert made with chenna, which is fresh Indian cheese that is made from curdling whole milk.  This dish is often made with refined white sugar, but I’ve replaced that with raw turbinado sugar.  In order to get a smooth consistency, it is important to blend the raw sugar with the other ingredients to get finer sugar particles.  This is not only dessert, but in the true fashion of whole-foods based cooking, it is packed with protein and uses no refined ingredients.

Ingredients:

  • 1 and 3/4 cup chenna
  • 1/3 cup raw turbinado sugar
  • 1/2 cup organic whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder

Directions:

  1. Blend together chenna, raw sugar, and milk until smooth.  Pour into pot and stir continuously with spatula until soft dough forms.  This may take some time.  Turn off heat and stir in cardamom.  Dump onto lightly sprayed plate to cool slightly.
  2. While still warm, form into desired shapes or put into molds.  Let cool to set.  (These sweets set further in the fridge).  Enjoy!
