Making the original kalakand takes several hours & is a lot of arm work as it requires continuous stirring. This lengthy process of reducing the milk to form the solids refrains most people from making this at home. However, when you have a recipe which reduces the time and effort to make this sweet without compromising on the taste, then how can you not make this at home!
