Kalakand using Ricotta Cheese

Last Saturday I invited a couple for dinner who got married last month.I was planning to make some kind of sweet for the newly married couple. Finally I made my mind to make something simple and very tasty. Here you go Kalakand. This is just mouth watering sweet for anyone. Very rich in taste.

I hope you all enjoy this sweet.

Ingredients:1 cup of Ricotta Cheese
1-1/2 cup of Milk Powder ( I used non fat milk powder from Safeway)
3/4 cup of Sugar
Unsalted butter (3oz)
Unsalted crushed Pistachios for decorating.

Place the Unsalted butter in a microwaveable large bowl, keep it for 2 mts in microwave. Once the butter is melted add the ricotta cheese keep it in microwave for 2 more mts. Then Add the milk powder and Sugar mix it well. Keep it in the microwave for  6-8 mts.(Depending on microwave power time will vary. Mine usually takes 8-10 mts)  For every few 2 mts stir the mixture to cook evenly.

(This mixture can over flow so please make sure to use larger bowl to avoid spilling.) 

Once in a while please keep an eye on the mixture in the microwave before it turns golden color. Once the mixture starts turning golden color remove it from Microwave.

Grease a separate pan and transfer the mixture and add crushed pistachios. Cut into cubes. Allow it to cool for 10 mts then serve.

This dish is very simple and easy to make.
