Ingredients to make Kalakand

  • 3 cups Full Fat Milk Powder-I used Nido Brand
  • 1 can Condensed Milk,14 oz
  • 300 ml heavy whipping cream
  • Crushed Green cardamom seeds
  • Rose water for dabbing on top(optional)
  • Saffron, chopped almonds and pistachios for garnishing

How to make Kalakand

  1. Take a microwave safe, rectangular glass dish and put the milk powder in it.
  2. Empty the condensed milk and heavy whipping cream on top. Sprinkle the Cardamom powder and saffron on top and mix everything well.
  3. Microwave on HIGH, for 3 minutes
  4. Take out from microwave, stir and break lumps and put it back for another 3 minutes(BE VERY CAREFUL, IT MIGHT BOIL OVER. WATCH THE MICROWAVE, IF IT LOOKS LIKE IT MIGHT BOIL OVER,STOP, PAUSE, CONTINUE COOKING)
  5. Take out dish again, stir lumps and put back in the microwave for another 2 minutes.
  6. At this point it should be pretty much done,depending on microwave. If you need to, stir again and do another 1 minute.
  7. So 3 minutes-Stir-3 minutes-stir-2 minutes, that should be the time line. If need to, do another minute, if still needed, do another minute.
  8. Put wax paper on top and take a flat bowl to smoothen top, if needed.
  9. Apply Rose water on top,let it rest for 5-10 minutes and cut into pieces.
  10. Decorate with chopped nuts and additional Saffron
My Tip: This is the easiest and tastiest kalakand ever. Just be careful, it tends to boil over,if you see it rising,(because it is milk) stop the microwave and pause for a few seconds and restart. For me it usually takes 8-9 minutes, be careful not to overcook. The timing can depend on the wattage of the microwave. Remember, 3 minutes-stir-3 minutes-stir-2 minutes
