    Hi Priya, I tried this recipe yesterday and unfortunately my kalakand burnt. I had only cooked it for a total of 15 minutes and it got burned. What did i do wrong? the recipe said to cook for 5 minutes then mix then cook for 20. I cooked for 5 then for another 10 minutes. i took it out of microwave and it was brown. It still taste pretty good. but its just not burfi anymore, its more like halwa (really hard halwa). But i really want to try this again.. can you please advise on what i should do? Thank you so much in advance!

        I want to try this and thanks for a lovely recipe. Can u specify the alternatives for cheese/paneer and milk powder along with its measurements?  

        BTW, in the above line u mentioned paneer as alternative for cheese and condensed milk for milk powder right? condensed milk here means unsweetened version right?

          Hi ramya.. thanks a lot for ur comment..if u r using cheese r paneer u have to take always 1 cup approximately 250 gms…milk powder is 2 cup..in case if u r using condensed milk, better to use sweetened condensed milk u can decrease r increase the condensed milk measurements as per ur need…hope this helps..
