Quick N Easy - Kalakand

This is one of the easiest and quickest mithais. I love to make mithais and hubby loves to eat them, so blogging about these home-made Indian sweets is kind of keeping a track of what I make for him and what he eats! I love to make Kalakand as it only takes 5 ingredients and is sooooooo easy!! Don't believe me? Look at the ingredients list and you will know that I am not lying!

Makes about 16 pieces

15 oz. container of full fat ricotta cheese
8 oz. Carnation skimmed milk powder
8 oz. granulated sugar
1/2 cup ghee
A pinch of cardamom

Garnish: slivered almonds, pistachios( Optional)

How to:
Mix all the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl.
Cook for 3 minutes.
Stir and cook for 3 more minutes.
At this time, you will see that there is much less water content remaining in the mixture.
Depending on the water content and the capacity of the microwave(my Panasonic takes only 7 minutes in total!) you need to adjust the time to cook.
Once a solid mass forms, pour and spread in a well greased plate.
Garnish with slivered almonds and pistachios, let it cool down for a couple of hours and cut into pieces.
