Mango Kalakand

The year has just begun, with the most important and very traditional festival Pongal and some traditional sweets to go with the festival. Slowly we begin to make and bake sweets for the festivals. I don't tend to make much sweets, only some occasionally. I prepare sweets only for sundar, you know I not a sweet lover. One reason is I'm not fond of sweets and another is its quite time consuming.


This is quite an easy and simple sweet to prepare. I have seen most of them preparing the Kalakand. So I wanted to attempt it this time. They are some what similar to Palkova. I have always said sweet is not my favorite, but when it comes to Palkova I do not feel that way.

It is just the ease to prepare the sweet made me to prepare the sweet. Just 10 mins, and you have the sweet done. Of course, you require some ingredients, specially in you pantry as part of this recipe.  And you can alter the flavors to suit your family. Plain Kalakand, Mango flavored, Kesar Flavored, rosewater flavored, Gulgand Flavored etc.
