The original Kalakand / Milk cake is a dense, granular, burfi-like sweetmeat prepared with milk, sugar, ghee and the perfection of Baba's art. Kalakand has its origin in the city of Alwar from where its popularity has spread across the globe. Alwar Kalakand, Alwar ka Mawa or Alwar ka Milk Cake as this is more popularly known, is created by the curdling of milk giving it its hallmark brown coloured centre. The creators of this sweet, Baba Thakur Das & Sons have championed the sweet revolution of Milk Cake in Alwar. Started way back in 1947, their Kalakand has beautifully conquered the taste palates.
