Kalakand is a traditional Indian sweet made from solidified, sweetened milk and paneer (cottage cheese). It is a popular dessert in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. The dish is prepared by reducing milk on a low flame with the addition of sugar and paneer. The mixture is then cooked until it thickens and solidifies. It is then cut into small pieces and garnished with nuts and dried fruits. Kalakand is usually served during festivals and special occasions.
