KALAKAND RECIPE
  Kalakand is a milk sweet which i tried for the first time and i was very much impressed by the outcome of this sweet. Though i have tasted this few years ago,this is the first time i attempted to try this and it was a great hit. You can try this for Janmashtami neivedyam too.

INGREDIENTS:

MILK 2 CUPS + 2 CUPS
LEMON JUICE 1 AND 1/2 TBLSP
SUGAR 1/4 CUP +3 TBLSP
CARDAMOM POWDER A PINCH
GHEE 1/4 TSP(TO GREASE THE PLATE
PISTACHIO FEW TO GARNISH

This measurement yielded 7-8 kalakands of medium size.

Method:

  • Add 2 cups of milk in a vessel and once this reaches the boiling consistency just keep the flame in low and allow the milk to reduce into 1to 1 and 1/4 cup.

  • Meanwhile boil the remaining 2 cups of milk in a vessel and once when it comes to boil, add the lemon juice to this. Dilute the lemon juice with 1 tsp of water.

  • Now you can see the water start separating.
  • switch off the flame to avoid over coking and drain with a clean muslin cloth.
  • Wash this nicely in running tap water. This step is to get rid of the sour taste of the lemon in the paneer.

  • Add this Paneer to the boiling milk and mix well.
  • Keep the flame low.
  • Add sugar and cardamom powder  to this and mix well.

  • Saute this nicely without getting burnt, till the moisture leaves and this become a whole mass.
  • This took approximately 11 minutes for me.
  • Grease a plate with ghee and keep aside.
  • Once the milk + paneer combo comes into a mass transfer this to the plate greased with ghee.

  • Keep this in the refrigerator for half an hour.
  • After that, cut them into squares and garnish with sliced pistachios.

Note:

  1. You can replace sugar with 1/2 tin of condensed milk.
  2. If using condensed milk add it after the milk comes to a boil.
  3. This can be done in microwave also .
