kalakand sweet recipe | kalakand mithai | kalakand milk cake barfi with step by step photo and video recipe. milk based dessert recipes are very common across india. it is appreciated for its creamy and richness and are prepared for various occasions and celebrations. generally, it is prepared with either paneer or chenna, but it can also be extended to other types of sweets. one such simple and easy milk dessert recipe is kalakand or also known as indian milk cake.

i have posted quite a few milk dessert recipes till now in my blog. out of this chenna based rasgulla and ras malai are extremely popular and i get frequent questions about it. while the Indian milk cake or kalakand recipe is not that popular like rasgulla, but it gets a ton of questions during the festival season of diwali. hence, i thought of re-posting my old video with a new shoot. this includes some of the basic tips and tricks while handling the milk solids or chenna that eventually helps to yield a moist and creamy sweet. initially, i thought of extending this recipe by adding dates and raisins to the milk solids and term it as dry fruit kalakand. but later i decided to skip it and follow the traditional way.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the kalakand sweet recipe. firstly, there are different ways to prepare the kalakand milk cake. i have shown a traditional and authentic way, but to hasten the cooking process you can either use paneer or even condensed milk for proper consistency. secondly, the cooking and preparation process takes only 30 mins to prepare this sweet. but it takes overnight resting time in the refrigerator to set it. hence plan this sweet accordingly. lastly, if you wish to add additional flavours like kesar, honey or even chocolate you may add it while the milk is evaporated. i personally like the basic version and hence i have shown this simple version.
