As of now i have 22 dessert recipes......I love love sweets....I have tried many recipes my home .But now ,I wanted to make some authentic Indian sweets by someway or the other without spending hours n hours ...I had a guest last week and felt like making something really Indian not which in my blog .. I searched for many....and finally tried the 20 minutes microwave kalakand...it really tasted great and now i wanted to share u this recipe .u can do this in two ways, by adding1)condensed milk + grated paneer2)milk powder + ricotta cheese...i used number 2.paneer and condensed milk are well know to all of us.but using some good Italian ricotta cheese to our indian dish is different rite?There is no much difference between ricotta and panner .they look alike,but made by following different procedures.I think u all know but this is too much...coming to the recipe
2cups ricotta cheese(1/2 fat ) or grated paneer
2 cups milk powder(fat free would be fine)or small tin condensed milk
1/2 stick butter(at room temp)
1 cup sugar( do not use sugar for sweetened condensed milk)
Dried fruits for garnish
Combine all the ingredients except dried friuts .
Microwave for 5-6 minutes on high .
Remove stir well and microwave on hig for 5 min.
Remove stir well and now microwave on high till it becomes has some light brown edges(for me it took like 10 min for 700 W microwave) .Microwave if u want to.But don't brown it.Because when u set it aside to let it cool it will slightly change its color .
Now put all the mixture on a flat surface or a flat baking tray and soften the top and adges .
Set aside and let it cool.do not cut into pieces untill it is firm.
Cut into ur desired shapes and garnish with an almond , cashew ,pistachio or saffron.
