Microwave Kalakand and the Sweet li'l bear

First of all, thanks Priya and Ramya for passing me the Chocoholic bear. Who wouldn't love chocolate? :-) I would like to pass this to Aartee, Pavani and Vidhya
Now a sweet recipe for the sweet bear :-)

I saw this recipe few weeks back and wanted to make it. I made it for my husband's birthday and it was super easy and tasted great.




Ingredients :
Sweetened Condensed Milk - 14 oz
Ricotta Cheesa - same quantity as the condensed milk. (Fill the can as mentioned in the above recipe)
Cardomom powder - a pinch
Saffron and chopped nuts for garnishing
Ghee - 1 spoon



Method :
Mix ingredients 1 -3 and microwave for 12 minutes or until it reaches the grainy consistency. Stir in between to avoid boiling over. I stirred every 2 minutes for the first 3 times and then increased the time. Insert a spoon to see if it is done. If it doesn't stick to the spoon, it is done.Transfer it into a greased plate and let it cool for few minutes. Cut them into slices.
Heat some ghee and add saffron and chopped nuts and fry them till the nuts are slightly browned (i used almonds). Garnish the kalakand with saffron and almonds. There is an alternate recipe for this kalakand with milk powder and condensed milk. It was easy and awesome too. I will dig in and post it later for those who won't get Ricotta cheese.
Sending this to MEC: Cheese event hosted by Pavani. MEC Event was started by Srivalli
I am also sending this to Aparna's Blog Birthday :-)
