Recipe for kalakand burfi

Ingredients for kalakand burfi

  • 2 Litres Milk
  • 2 Spoons Lemon Juice
  • 100 G Powdered Sugar
  • 3-4 Cardamoms
  • 15 Pistachios

How to make the kalakand burfi

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.
