Pistachio nuts, chopped
Step 1 of 4
Mash or grate the paneer coarsely and mix in the dairy whitener and Carnation Sweetened Condensed Milk.
Step 2 of 4
Heat the mixture in a thick bottom pan. Cook on medium heat with constant stirring until the mixture becomes thick and starts leaving the sides of the pan.

Remove from the heat and spread onto a greased plate or small tray (about 2cm thick).
Step 4 of 4
Sprinkle over the cardamom powder and decorate with chopped pistachio. Cool and cut into squares.
Once you've made the original recipe you can experiment with adding dry fruits or different flavourings. For a softer Kalakand choose fresh paneer rather than the refrigerated kind. Make sure you allow it to cool before cutting it into squares.
