Story
This one is my favourite dessert. We can easily buy it from any Indian sweets shop. I love eating kalakand so much that I was eager to know the method of preparing it. When I got the recipe, I was amazed to know that such a beautiful dessert can be prepared so easily and in no time. Like me, even you will be tempted to try it at home.
