DOUBLE DECKER KALAKAND


This is a sweet made with cottage cheese/paneer and thickened milk.Some use home

made paneer,but for those who have less time and want to do it instantly you can use

store bought paneer too.

This can be made without chocolate and with lot of variations. ( suggestions will be at the end of the recipe)

For my version I have added cashewnut powder .You can add milk powder or mawa

INGREDIENTS

1/2 litre full cream milk

200 gm paneer / cottage cheese mashed.

1/4 – 1/2 cup sugar(depending on individual sweet tooth)

a pinch of salt

1/2 tsp elaichi powder

Sliced nuts for topping.

METHOD

Heat milk till it is reduced to half.

Add sugar and keep stirring till it is thick.

While it is semi- solid add the paneer and cook .

Next add the cashewnuts powder / mawa or milk powder,elaichi powder and mix well

till it forms a mass ,not crumbly. (If it becomes crumbly don’t worry add a little milk

and it will be fine)

Transfer  onto a greased plate and allow to set for minimum 2-3 hours.You can also keep

it in the fridge to set.

You can use silver vark and nuts for the topping.Cut into desired shapes

Now,if you are going to make chocolate layer also…method is simple .

Divide the mixture into 2 and add 1-2 tsp cocoa powder ( check and add) whilst hot .Mix

well and pour on the white layer after it is partly cool.

Variations :

1. Coconut and chocolate layer.You can add dessicated coconut to the white layer ,and top layer chocolate.

2.Add mint essence and a drop of green color to the bottom layer ,and for                         the top chocolate or basic white layer.

3.Rose petals with rose essence

4.Kesar or saffron layer

5.Rose color and rose essence or syrup with chocolate layer.
