i have already shared the instant kalakand recipe which has similar characteristics to milk cake recipe. in instant kalakand, i used homemade paneer and mixed with condensed milk to achieve the thick cake like consistency. well it is a cheat or instant version, however in this recipe i have shown how the milk solids are prepared traditionally by evaporating the moisture from milk. it can be time consuming and monotonous, but certainly the end result would definitely make you happy.

furthermore some important tips and suggestions for a perfect soft and moist milk cake kalakand sweet recipe. firstly, i have used full cream cows milk for this recipe and i would heavily recommend to use the same. basically full cream milk would yield more milks solids as compared to the skim milk. secondly, add the lime juice or vinegar only after milk has been reduced to one third. otherwise if added early it would turn to paneer with excess water. lastly, once the milk solids are formed, pour them into a steel or aluminium container. this would help to retain the heat and achieve the proper texture and colour to milk cake.
