Badam Kalakand

Badam Kalakand is a Indian sweet made with almonds,milk and sugar. This is a simplified version of it which can be made in minutes in microwave.
Ricotta cheese- 1 cup
Sweetened condensed milk-1 cup
Ground almonds-1 tbsp
Saffron- a few strands soaked in warm milk
Ghee or butter to grease the bowl
Mixed Crushed nuts to garnish
Grease a large microwave safe bowl with butter.Combine all the ingredients and stir well. Microwave it in high for 5 minutes. Open it and stir well again. Microwave again for 5 minutes.Take it out and stir well. Microwave for 5 minutes again, this time check in the middle of every 1 minute. If it's not looking like a liquid ,pour it in a plate, garnish with nuts and cut it into squares.
You can also make other kalakand by adding ground pistachios or cashews instead of almonds. You can also use other flavouring like cardamon or rosewater.
Chocolate kalakand can also be made by using cocoa powder.
