  • Add grated paneer, cardamom powder or rose water and mix well. Paneer absorbs condensed milk and it will thicken initially. But if you keep mixing in low flame, mixture will become loose and watery.

  • Keep the flame medium and stir well. After 3 to 4 minutes, it will start to thicken and leave the sides of pan. Mix for a minute. You will see the mixture becoming grainy and thick. Switch off the flame and remove the pan immediately.

Note

  • You can add some sugar ( say 1tbsp) if you feel sweet is less.
  • Fresh chena tastes the best. But I used store bought paneer.
  • If you mix for long time, kalakand may become chewy.So remove at the right time.
  • If you are not able to cut into pieces, refrigerate for more time.

Easy, yummy, Instant kalakand is ready to serve !
