Mango Kalakand (Fudge)

It is not always about having a beautiful day! To me, it is about finding beautiful moments in an ordinary day. I believe that any day, however dark and rustic it maybe, has some shade of beauty in it…….. IF we look for them.

It might be sipping a perfectly brewed coffee while reading my favorite novel...

Or maybe just looking out of my window and pausing to enjoy the pitter-patter on the windowsill....

Or simply enjoy every bite of anything chocolate…well I confess, any desserts for that matter... :P

They say, “A moment on your lips is a lifetime on your hips.” But who cares what THEY say! I say, “Life is too short. So keep calm and eat your desserts first. After all, STRESSED spelled backwards is DESSERTS.” =))

So, what are you waiting for ! Make these yumilicious Mango Kalakand and add a tinge of beauty to any ordinary day.


Paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese) - 2 cups
Mango Pulp - 5 tbs
Milk Powder - 2 tbs
Sweetened condensed milk - 1 can (400 g)
Cardamom - 5 crushed
Pistachio - around 8-10 chopped
Saffron - few strands (optional)


1. Mash the paneer coarsely. I used a carrot grater to do this.

2. Add milk powder and sweetened condensed milk to the paneer.Mix well.

3. Transfer the mixture to a pan and cook on medium heat.

4. Add cardamom, few pistachios and mango pulp.

5. Stir continuously for about 10 minutes till the mixture becomes thick.You would know it is done when the mixture no longer sticks to your pan.

6. Spread the mixture to a greased plate or any dish.Make sure you spread it thick enough that it is easier to slice them later.

7. Sprinkle pistachios, saffron strands and refrigerate for few hours.

8. Slice the fudge to your desired size and shape. It can be squares, rectangles or even diamonds.That is totally up to you !

9. This is the most important step - Enjoy these delicious mango fudge to your heart's content :D
