Kalakand is an Indian sweet made out of sweetened milk and paneer. The traditional way of making kalakand is a very long process and time taking. Here I am sharing an easy and quick version of making kalakand.

Traditionally kalakand is prepared by evaporating and solidifying the milk. After which this thick milk is curdled, add sugar and cook for few more minutes. Finally cut this into shapes. In this quick and easy recipe, I am using milkmaid with soft and spongy paneer (cottage cheese). As a result, the long process of evaporation and curdling is completely skipped.Kalakand is an Indian sweet made out of sweetened milk and paneer.

Kalakand always takes first place among sweets during festival time especially Diwali, Holi. This soft, fudgy and crumbly Indian sweet which a gluten-free as well, is very easy to make with just two ingredients. You can use homemade paneer too, sometimes we do not get fresh paneer from the market. Since condensed milk has been used in this recipe, I have not added extra sugar. In case you required sweeter version, always can add 2-3 tablespoon of sugar.

What it means to be Gluten-Free

Gluten is a general name for the proteins found in wheat (wheatberries, durum, emmer, semolina, spelt, farina, farro, Graham, KAMUT® Khorasan wheat and einkorn), rye, barley, and triticale – a cross between wheat and rye. This helps foods maintain their shape, acting as a glue that holds food together. Gluten can be found in many types of foods, even ones that would not be expected.

People affected with this food allergy cannot digest any food having gluten.

Kalakand’s shelf life is 4-5 days or max a week if kept in the fridge. But keeping in the fridge makes it harder and with the dry texture. It is always advisable to keep them outside in a cool place and consume within a few days.
