I am sending this white chocolate kalakand to Srivalli’s Blogging Marathon for the Chocolate theme and to Srivalli’s Kid’s potluck party. I am on vacation and I am buying WiFi from Taj for 150 bucks for half an hour (You believe that! I’d think classy Taj would provide free Wifi) so that I can upload my masterpieces to the blogosphere.
Another short-cut cheat recipe, this sweet/mithai is ready in under 10 minutes and tastes great. It’s not the traditional kalakand in that it doesn’t involve paneer or reduced milk, but it is a close second and it tastes fabulous. My son loved it. He is a sweet lover. I made this white chocolate kalakand the day we were leaving on our vacation and again the pictures are the most basic. Just 2 ingredients to this kalakand – White chocolate and Mawa/Khoya.
Prep time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 3 mins
Makes: 18 small squares
Unsweetened Mawa/Khoya – 200 gm grated
White Chocolate – 175 gm roughly chopped up
Ghee – 2 tsp
Slivered Almonds/Pistachios – a handful for garnishing (I didn’t have time for this)
1 . Grease a square pan with ghee and set aside.
2 . In a pan, add ghee. Add the grated mawa and stir around till it’s slick and shiny – about 1 minute. Remove from heat.
3 . Stir in the chopped chocolate till it’s melted and well incorporated. Transfer the mixture to the greased square pan, level and sprinkle the slivered almonds/pistachios on top. Let cool for 10 minutes by which time it would have nicely solidified. Cut into squares and serve.
