Kalakand

Today is a very special day for all bengali Son-in-law.In bengali this is called Jamai Shasthi.
Son-in-law is called Jamai in bengali.In this occassion Every Jamai goes to their sosurbari and there he celebrate with all his sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law.Here Sasuri ma or Mother-in-law blesses his Son-in-law and daughter together.New garments are also given to them for this occassion.And lots of Recipes for this occassion are made too.All are must something bengali dishes.In these dishes sweets are much more necessary.And thats why many sweet dishes are made or brought from the famous shops.But we are very far from this bengali festival as we have to stay far away from out home town todays for the job purpose.But more of this we can celebrate it over the phone or something special menu for this day in favour of Sosurbari towards the Jamai.You know it is very exciting for me too.So For this special event I made something very special in favour of My Mother for her Grand Jamai.Today I will share you a sweet item called kalakand in Bengali.Its is made out of solidified,sweetend milk and chana(or ricotta cheese).It is very popular in Bengal too.So check out this recipes ...
