Gulabi Kalakand – Rose Water Flavored Ricotta Dessert
What can be better than a super quick, moist and yet delicious dessert on a cold damp winter day ?
I guess some hot cuppa tea/coffee to go along with it 🙂
‘Kalakand’ is a popular Indian Sweet and is made using milk, sugar and nuts. It can be called a soft fudge too.
The traditional recipe calls for full-fat milk that’s slowly boiled to a thick consistency (almost half the quantity of the initial size).
Then sugar and fragrant water is mixed (rose, kewda, etc) to give it a light taste.
Then the reduced milk fudge is set in a large tray and chopped nuts are sprinkled on top for the final presentation.
Super easy to make and extremely delicious in every bite.
As I’ve been missing my Indian sweets a lot here, I decided to make these ‘Gulabi Kalakand’ at home.
However, I didnt wanted to go through the whole process of slow boiling the milk for ages on the stovetop (seriously it takes hours and you keep stirring in between).
So, I decided to use Ricotta (my favorite substitute of milk/paneer ingredients in sweets).
And what’s, even more, easier, it is made in the microwave!!! That means no more stirring the mix for hours on stove.
And once the Kalakand is ready, trust me people will feel you have slogged for hours to make it 🙂
Gulabi Kalakand also makes an excellent treat or dessert recipe for any Indian Festivals like Holi, Diwali, etc.
The trick to this sweet is to keep the taste as simple as possible, retaining moisture and the rose flavor makes it mouth watering……Enjoy
