Instant Kalakand / Kalakand / Milk cake

Kalakand / Milk cake is a traditional Indian sweet which takes more than a hour to make. I prepared this with 15 minutes using paneer, milk powder and condensed milk to reduce the cooking time; of course, the taste was awesome! Feeling happy!!!!

This is a perfect sweet treat to celebrate Diwali; we all especially my kids love these delicious sweet! 

Try out this quick and easy to prepare sweet that is suitable for all special occasions!

Yield - 8 to 10 pieces approximately

Paneer - 200 gms
Condensed milk - ½ tin (1 tin = 400 gms)
Milk powder - 2 tbsp
Sugar - 1 or 2 tbsp
Cardamom powder - ¼ tsp
Pistachios - for garnish
Ghee / clarified butter - for greasing the plate


Thaw / Defrost paneer and grind it into a coarse powder using mixer / grinder.
Take a bowl and add powdered paneer, milkmaid, milk powder, sugar and cardamom powder.   Mix well. 
Heat a non stick pan, transfer the paneer mixture into that.

Keep stirring continuously over medium flame until the mixture starts to leave the pan and become a thick mass; switch off the gas.

Pour the mixture into a greased plate and garnish with chopped / grated pistachios.

Allow them to cool 5 to 7 minutes and then cut into desired shapes. 


Instead of cardamom powder; you can also use saffron.

You can also use home made fresh paneer.

When this mixture is cooled, it tends to get thick.
