Burfi----------- Kalakandh(Milk Burfi / Sweet) ---Festival Dishes and Diwali special


Kalakand is made of milk and milk products and very popular sweet in northern and eastern part of India.I read somewhere the word kand in kalakand means sweet in Arabic language... There are atleast 3 different ways of preparing the sweet... Proper method of preparing this would be by boiling the milk till it reduces to 75% of its original quantity... Easier way is to use condensed milk. The below recipe has 3rd option - using Ricotta cheese and milk powder...
I learnt this from one of my friends ( Rajni)...Try and enjoy the sweet...

Servings 30 pieces

Ingredients
16 ounce ricotta cheese
Same measure Carnation Milk powder
3/4th of above measure Sugar
1 tsp cardamon powder
1 tsp dry fruit mix (pista and badam) for garnishing
1/2 stick butter (unsalted)

Method
Mix all the above ingredients ( except dry fruits) in a microwave safe large glass bowl.. Microwave it for 3 min...

Stir properly and microwave it again for 2 min... Repeat the procedure for 2 more times... Initially it might be too liquidy, and gradually it will start solidifying... Add 1/2 the above quantity of dry fruits, stir and microwave for 2 more min... Standing time for 2 min in microwave and pour the mix on a greased plate...


Garnish it with dry fruits.. Above said time may vary according to microwave device's power... Cut into square pieces...

If you want  light brown color Kalakand, repeat microwave/stirring for couple of more times..

Let it set for 30 min... Store it in Refrigerator for a week...
