Kalakand Barfi Recipe (Indian Dessert)


Indian Dessert (Kalakand Barfi)

Time to Prepare: 8-10minutes

Serving: 8/10 People


  • 3 cups Nido Carnation Milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soft butter
  • 1/2 tsp elatich (cardamom) powder
  • 250ml Table Cream/Light Cream/Coffee Cream.
  • Rose Water (This can be bought in your ethnic food stores)


  • Mix all ingredients in a big glass bowl and then microwave for 5 minutes.
  • Remove and mix with a spatula a few times and then microwave for 2 more minutes.
  •  When you remove the dish you should notice that the mixture is thicker and it’s not sticking to the sides of the dish as much.
  • Remove and place on flat surface and shape it into a thin rectangle.
  • I usually take Rose Water and put some in my hand and slap it on the barfi and shape it quickly since it’s hot.
  • I add silver Edible foil and then let it sit for 10/12 minutes before cutting.

This dessert can be stored at room temperature for about 3 days and after that you should place it in the fridge.
