Kalakand/Mawa Mishri

इस व्यंजन को हिन्दी में पढ़ें

Kalakand is a very famous North Indian dessert. In Western India (specially in Rajasthan) kalakand is also known as Mawa Mishri . In this dessert, milk is slowly converted into granular form by adding alum a little by little, without letting the milk split. Traditionally, mishri is used instead of sugar to make this dessert.. I could not find mishri so I have used sugar..I got the idea of this recipe from Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor's book, so big thanks to Mr Kapoor for sharing such wonderful recipes. Enjoy this delicious dessert….

Kalakand is ready to serve. You can also make kalakand for religious ceremonies and offer to gods !

Some tips/ Suggestions:

I have used cow's milk for the preparation of Kalakand. Buffalo milk is not available in the western world. You can also use buffalo milk , the procedure will be same.

Alum powder can be found in the spice section of grocery stores. Alum is used in pickling recipes as a preservative.

Garnish kalakand with some mishri if you can find it.
