  • keep on adding the lemon juice till the milk coagulates
  • once the milk has coagulated, switch off the flames and let the chenna sit for some time
  • now strain out the water from the chenna using the cloth piece and keep it hanged in the cloth for about 4 to 6 hours to get rid off all the extra water.
  •  Now take out the chenna in a flat glass plate and rub it with your hands untill you get a smooth texture just the way you do to make an atta doh

  • once done switch off the flames and allow the mixture to cool down a little but not totally cold
  • now make 12 equal portions out ot of the mixture. Take each portion one by one and make balls out of it.
  • Make a small hole in between and place 2 to 3 raisins depending on the size of the raisin. Now close the hole and again make a ball will the raisins inside it and then flatten a little or you can give any shape of your choice
  • follow the same procedure for all the portions. You can also use dry fruits of your choice in place of raisins. Your gurer sondesh is all ready to be served. I bet it wont taste any less than the halwai sondesh.
