I've made burfi with ricotta before:

I've not made sandesh, but this recipe below looks simple and most Indian dessert sites will tell you that panner/cottage cheese/ricotta cheese are all good substitutes for each other. If your ricotta is especially runny, you can drain it in cheese cloth for about an hour (that's the end step of making paneer).

Good luck! If you have extra time, it's really worth making your own paneer. It's very easy and relatively fast. Here's a good recipe:
