Love kalakand but don’t want to buy it from shops? Want to try your hand at making it at home? Here’s a simple recipe you can use.
Kalakand, a very tasty sweet dish. Everyone likes it, but it is usually store bought. What does one do if one wants to make it at home?
So I’m going to fulfill your wish and share with you my recipe. It is very easy to make kalakand at home. It does not consume much time in the cooking either.
So let’s make some yummy kalakand burfi with common ingredients that can be easily found in most homes.
First of all boil half of the milk; i.e. 1 litre of it.
Now lower the flame, add lemon juice, and stir continuously.
In around 5 minutes, chhena will be separated from the milk.
Hang that chhena in a cotton cloth.
Take another pan. Bring the rest of the milk to boil, and then lower the flame, boiling till it reduces and thickens.
When the milk has been reduced to approximately 1/4 litre, add chhena. Mix it well.
Now add the powdered sugar and keep stirring continuously. Cook till it becomes thick and starts to come together.
Now add crushed cardamom and mix well.
Take a flat pan and grease it with oil or ghee. Pour the thickened mixture into that pan. Garnish it with the cut pistachio.
Rest it 5-6 hours.
Now heat outer layer of pan to loosen it, and take out the kalakand from pan.
Cut into pieces of your favorite size.
Don’t thicken the milk too much. Add the chenna only after the milk has been reduced to less than half a litre.
So, don’t think much more. Make your it today, and share your experiences with us.
