Mango Kalakand

My family can live on desserts, my husband and daughter both have sweet tooth. So on regular basis i need to cook something sweet.

Normally i get to hear from my dear hubby “kuch mithai hai kya ?” ( is there any dessert?)

Here is my quick and easy recipe for Mango Kalakand


2 cups Mango Pulp

1 1/2 cup panner

1 cup Khoya

1/2 cup sugar

1 tbsp ghee

1 tsp Mango essence

3 tbsp sliced Pistachios

2 tbsp sliced Almonds

1 tsp saffron strand


In a nonstick pan, combine mango puree,crumbled panner and grated mawa.

Stir and put it on low flame.

Keep stirring the mixture continuously.
After about 10-12 minutes the mixture would begin to thicken.

Add Sugar and mango essence, further cook till the mix thickens. Add a tbsp of ghee and cook till the kalkand get the shine.

When the mixture leaves the sides of the pan add sliced nuts.

Continue to cook for another 3-4 minutes.

Switch off the flame and set aside.

Grease the tray with ghee.

Spread the Mango Kalakand into it.

Give a gentle tap of the table so that kalkand spread evenly in the tray.
Sprinkle remaining nuts and saffron strands and keep it in the fridge for at least 4-5 hours to chill and set.

Once set cut the kalkand with knife in the desired shapes and serve.
