Carrot-kalakand
Notes:
  1. I used store bought paneer. You can use home made paneer by curdling the milk.
  2. The sweetness was just perfect, but if you need little extra sweet, add 2 tblsp more sugar or condensed milk.
  3. Always cut the kalakand once it is cool completely. 
  4. The texture will not be hard like burfi, it will be chewy.
