1 cup crumbled paneer

3/4 cup Milk powder

1/2 tin Condensed milk

3 tbsp cream

1 tbsp ghee

1 tsp Cardamom powder

1/4 tsp kesar

2 tbsp sugar


In a nonstick pan, combine crumbled panner, milk powder, condensed milk, cream and mix well and put it on low flame.

Keep stirring the mixture continuously. After about 10-12 minutes the mixture would begin to thicken. Add cardamom powder and ghee and keep stirring.

Continue to cook for another 3-4 minutes.Switch off the flame and set aside.

Grease the tray with ghee. Spread the Kalakand into it.

Give a gentle tap of the table so that kalakand spread evenly in the tray. Put sliced almond and Pistachio on top and keep it in the fridge for at least 4-5 hours to chill and set.
