My sister was looking for a quick and unique sweet recipe for her son's first birthday... Kalakand seemed to be the perfect sweet we would all enjoy. She found a good recipe in kriba's blog and it turned out AWESOME! Everyone enjoyed the sweet and it was a huge hit...

Ingredients:

For plain kalakand:
1 tin condensed milk (14 oz)
Equal amounts of Ricotta Cheese (14 oz)
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
Coarsely chopped Pista/ Badam- as per requirement.

For Chocolate Kalakand:
Kribha has used Hersheys brand, but Aarthi added 2 tbsp Nesquik chocolate powder to the above ingredients. If you have cocoa at home, 1 tbsp should be enough.

Mix equal amounts of ricotta cheese and condensed milk in a wide mouth microwave dish.
Add elachi powder to the mixture and toss it into the microwave.
If making chocolate kalakand, add the chocolate powder also along with the ingredietns.
The total cooking time is around 15 minutes.

On high power, first microwave for 5 minutes. Take out and mix well.
Continue for another 5 minutes and mix again
Cook for another 5 more minutes and stir inbetween for every 1 minute

The end point is that mixture will leave the walls and have a grainy texture.
While hot, transfer to a greased tray and pat well. Cut into squares.
Add broken nuts on top and press.
Enjoy!
