Instant Kalakand

I was invited to a religious function and I had just a couple of effective hours of notice. I had in my mind that I should make some dessert which suits the occasion. Then I looked through some versions of kalakand which I have in my files and figured out this instant variety which could be made in under 30 min. Luckily I had some home made paneer which I could use.

It turned out that the sweet was a super hit with the little kids who were there at the venue. So I believe that this is a crowd pleaser as well as kid friendly.

So for Day 1 week 4 of BM #34, here is a kid approved sweet suitable for many occasions. Also sending this to Srivalli's 'Kid's Delight - Festival Sweets' hosted by Sowmya

Instant Kalakand

Ingredients - 

Homemade khoya 3/4 cup

Add all the ingredients in a heated non-stick pan and keep stirring.

  14. Hi Harini,

    Thanks for sharing the recipe. Kalakand is a popular sweet but never attempted at home. But I noticed that apart from condensed milk, you didn't have sugar measurement. Is the sugar in condensed milk sufficient?

  15. Harini R Says:
  16. @Deepa,
    Thanks for your comment. The sugar in the condensed milk was more than sufficient for the whole batch. In fact we felt it was a little too sweet for us but the kids and guests loved it as is. So feel free to add more condensed milk for the extra sweetness if you prefer.
