Kalakand is a delicious dessert prepared with paneer/cottage cheese. Authentic kalakand takes a long time to prepare. This is an instant version of kalakand recipe made using condensed milk and paneer. I wanted to try this instant kalakand for diwali, when I saw it here. It takes just 15 minutes to make this kalakand. It can be prepared even by novice. Today we will learn how to make kalakand using milkmaid following this easy recipe.
Grease a plate with few drops of ghee or you can use a baking tin lined with parchment paper.
Squeeze out water from the paneer if any. Grate or crumble paneer. You can use the mixie to crumble paneer using the whipper button just for a second.
In a pan (preferably non stick), mix together paneer, sweetened condensed milk/milkmaid and milk powder.
Mix everything well and then switch on the heat. Mash well and cook on low heat.
The mixture will start thickening. Add cardamom powder and mix well.
Cook further until the mixture leaves the sides of the pan.
Remove from heat and transfer the mixture into the greased tray or plate. Spread it evenly to 1 inch thickness and press it well.
Smoothen the top and decorate it with chopped pistachios. (I removed the skin of pistachios by soaking it in hot water for 10 minutes. Then chopped it finely and garnished it.)
Let it cool completely. Once it cools, refrigerate for an hour and cut it into pieces. Enjoy making this instant kalakand for this Diwali 2017.
