Mango Kalakand (Quick recipe)

Hello everyone, Rakshabandhan is round the corner, so lets prepare some homemade sweets for our brothers and take lot many gifts from them :)))) 

Kalakand is a very well know sweet by all of us. If we are going to follow the authentic recipe, it will take lots of time, but I have got you all a very easy, simple and quick recipe. I have flavoured it with mangoes and hence it will be Mango Kalakand. You can flavour it with only Cardamom or Kesar or may be strawberries or why not pineapple? Various options for you, only the basic recipe will be same. So lets quickly run through the ingredients following the method :)

Ingredients :
Method :
  • In a heavy bottom pan heat mango pulp for a 3-4 minutes. Once started reducing, add condensed milk and paneer and mix well. 
  • Cook it unless the water content is reduced and it starts leaving sides of the pan. Please refer video for the perfect consistency.
  • Once done, add cardamom powder, mix and take it out on a greased plate or a board.
  • Try to form a 1/2" log, apply the pistachios and let it completely cool.
  • Once cooled, cut it into desired shape and serve :)
Enjoy and have fun :)
Happy Rakshabandhan
