Ingredients to make Kalakand

  • 500 grams fresh paneer crumbled
  • 1 tin (400 ml) condensed milk
  • 4 tblsp milk powder
  • 3-4 cardamom pods crushed
  • handful of Pistachio flakes
  • 2 tsp rosewater
  • Couple of stands of saffron

How to make Kalakand

  1. 1. Drain out the water from the paneer completely. In a saucepan add the paneer, condensed milk and milk powder.
  2. 2. Cook on medium heat for 5 to 8 minutes, stirring continuously. Make sure that the mix does not stick to the bottom. You know it's ready when the mixture looks grainy and thick.
  3. 3. Turn off the gas and add the rosewater, saffron strands and cardamom pods to it.
  4. 4. Pour into a greased and lined square dish and set aside to cool. Transfer to a refrigerator and let it set for atleast 3 to 4 hours if not overnight.
  5. 5. When you're ready to serve, slice the Kalakand into equal squares and sprinkle pistachio flakes over it.
My Tip: You can add as many dry fruits as you'd like
