Kalakand Recipe -- How to make Kalakand at Home -- Milk Burfi Recipe

Kalakand
Kalakand or Indian Milk Cake or Milk Burfi is an Indian traditional sweet. It is the most scrumptious sweet in North and East India made during festive season. 

Making kalakand is very easy but time consuming. It is normally made with whole milk, but today I made it with regular milk only. As I was left with lots of milk at home, I thought of making best use of them. This is also very tasty. 

My mother is expert in this, every Thursday she used to make it to offer it to God Saibaba. Normally we get milky white texture but today I made it a little pinkish shade by adding sugar earlier. My mom told me a technique to get white or pink color. If sugar is added at the beginning, it looks pink upon completion, and white, if it's added at the end. So make your choice of colour too. I like it in pink, so I add it at the beginning only.

Some people add paneer or condensed milk to make it faster.  It helps in getting rich taste also. She never added anything like them.

We need only three ingredients to make this, but need to have patience and time to make it. We must do this sweet in a thick bottomed vessel only.
