Milk Cake Mithai Recipe - मिल्क केक / कलाकंद मिठाई रेसिपी - Priya R - Magic of Indian Rasoi

Milk Cake Mithai is a traditional Indian sweet and has its origin in Rajasthan. It is made with different variation across India. Also called Kalakand here we show how to make this wonderful sweet using milk powder. Basic ingredients required for this recipe are milk, milk powder, sugar and citric acid. This mithai has the granular texture owing to the fact that while this sweet is made it is curdled with citric acid or any other sour substance. Milk powder helps make this mithai more tastier and increases the output which otherwise would be half with only milk. Make this traditional Indian Mithai during any festivals like Navratri, Diwali, Holi or Eid or during any celebrations at home or party. You will just love this home made mithai!

TIPS:

1. Greasing the kadai reduces the problem of milk sticking to the bottom of pan.
2. Milk powder has 2 benefits. First milk cake will be very soft and will have very nice texture and second when you make milk cake with 1 litre milk it takes 40-50 min and when you make it with milk powder it will take 40-50 min but the quantity would be almost doubled!
3. While adding milk powder to milk mix well and try to remove all the lumps, however, if any lumps remain it will break while boiling the milk.
4. Keep scraping the sides of kadai while cooking milk.
5. Citric acid helps make the milk cake become nice and granular. But don't add much. Add only a pinch citric acid or else milk cake will have big granules! 
6. Adjust sugar as your preference. I have added 1/3 cup but you may also add 1/2 cup if you prefer more sweet.
7. If you prefer dark colour milk cake cook for more time after adding ghee.
