  • Grease a tray or thali with ghee
  • Spread the mixture on the thali and garnish with nuts.
  • Allow it to set for 2 to 3 hours.
  • Cut in desired shapes and enjoy soft danedar delicious kalakand. 

I have used Alphonso mango pulp hence the colour ,you can use frozen pulp as well
I have not used any essence since I  didn't want it to over power the kalakand.
Try and use homemade paneer.
I have used condensed milk ,you may need to add more condensed milk the sweetness was perfect for us as the mangoes i used were sweet.
You amy add more condensed milk or sugar as per your taste buds
