Microwave Kalakand

A very easy and tasty sweet. It tastes more of ajmeri Kalakand, which is available in most of the sweet shops in India.

  • Condensed milk: 1 can(16 oz)
  • Curd: 3 Tbsp
  • Ghee: 2 Tbsp
  • Take a microwave safe bowl, preferably glass or ceramic one. Grease the bowl with ghee.
  • Add condensed milk and curd and mix well.
  • Microwave it  for 8-10 min( stir every 40 seconds).Stirring is very important here.
  • After 10 min, kalakand will be in right consistency. If that is a bit loose, that is fine, as it cools down,it becomes thick.
You can garnish with chopped or grated nuts.

Serve cool or hot.

Note: Every microwave is different.So check the consistency and take off promptly.
