Kalakand is the simplest and yummy Indian sweet. Here's the recipe:

3 cups of milk
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp lemon juice/ vinegar
pistachio and almonds

Bring 2 cups of milk to boil. Dilute the lemon juice or vinegar in little water and add little by little to the boiling milk until the milk starts curdling. Remove from heat as soon as the milk is curdled. Strain out the water and keep aside the 'chenna' or soft paneer. Now in another vessel add remaining milk, chenna, sugar and reduce the mixture stirring constantly on medium heat.

Put of the heat when the milk is reduced and a thick granulated mixture is left. Spread it over the greased plate. Let it cool and cut into squares or diamonds. Garnish with the cut dry fruits on top.
