Thickened Milk 

  • 750 ml full-fat or whole milk 
  • ½ cup condensed milk
  • 1 cup pistachio powder 
  • ½ cup mango pulp (smooth) 
  • ¼ tsp green cardamom 
  • 10-12 saffron strands soaked in 2 tbsp of warm milk 
  • mangoes (diced)

Chenna Patties

  • 1L full-fat or whole milk 
  • ¼ cup vinegar 
  • 1 tsp fine semolina (switch to cornstarch for a gluten-free version)
  • Ice cubes

Sugar Syrup 

  • 4 cup water 
  • 1 cup sugar 


  1. For the mango-flavoured base, boil milk in a heavy pot and then simmer it for 10-12 minutes. Then add condensed milk, mix well and simmer it for another 5-7 minutes. Notice when the texture starts looking velvety, take it off the heat.
  2. Mix powdered pistachios, saffron & cardamom powder to the milk and let it cool for 15 minutes. Next, add the mango pulp.
  3. For the chenna, take another pot and boil the milk. Once it is boiling, switch off the flame, wait for 3-4 minutes and quickly add vinegar. Stir the mixture until the curdle is formed.
  4. In another pot, line with muslin or cheesecloth and strain the curdled milk. Wash the chenna thoroughly and then hang it by the cloth to remove excess whey for about 20-25 minutes.
  5. In a wide dish, take the chenna and add semolina. Now knead this mixture using the base of your palm for 8 minutes until smooth. The dough should be creamy and soft and should not be greasy. Then let it rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Next, make small chenna balls and then flatten them into patties shape and don’t make it too big.
  7. For the sugar syrup, add the sugar and water in a wide pan. When the syrup is boiling, add the chenna patties, cover it and cook for 8 minutes. 
  8. Watch as the small patties double in size and after 10-12 minutes switch off the flame when the patties are firm. It is time for patties to soak in syrup for 30 minutes to 2 hours. 
  9. Next, take the patties out, add to the cooled sweet mango milk and refrigerate it for at least 8 hours.
  10. Serve in a glass bowl and garnish with diced mango and extra nuts.
