Mango Kalakand/ Mango Ricotta Cheese Fudge/ Festaa Mango Kalakand





Kalakand is a milk based sweet, usually flavored with green cardamom, sold all over  India. 
Today, I paired it with King of fruits, mango using festaa syrup and it can be enjoyed in all seasons now. You could use store bought paneer to make this recipe, today, it's homemade here. Few pointers to note while preparing this recipe is : taste as you add the sweeteners i.e, festaa mango syrup and condensed milk. Secondly, do not overcook the mixture which will result in dry kalakand. It's one of the easy recipes when all your ingredients are ready and can be finished in minutes. 
Let's get started.



To make this recipe, You'll need : 

Fresh Chena/Paneer/Ricotta cheese
Made from 1 litre of milk
½ cup (can be adjusted more or less to your taste)
