اللَّهُمَّ إنَّكَ رَبٌّ عَظيمٌ لا يَسَعُكَ شيئٌ ممَّا خَلْقْتَ وأنتَ تَرى ولا تُرى في الدُّنْيا، وأنتَ بالمنظَرِ الأعْلى وأنَّ لكَ الآخِرَةَ والأُولى ولكَ المَمَاتُ والمَحْيَا وإليْكَ المُنتَهى والرُّجْعى، نَعُوذُ بكَ أن نَذِلَّ ونَخْزَى
Making confectionaries with Halal Cottage Cheese goes back to the times of Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam & Sahabah, & they prepared the sweets mostly with DATES, the fruit that was abundantly available. And although Dates Hais (Kalaqand) is the best in this world, we can make the same HAIS with other fruits / ingredients as well, & recently we tried the Almond+Kaju Kalaqand.
Preparation time is 2 hours
Blenched & then roasted almonds : 500 grams
Halal Cottage Cheese : 500 grams (obtained) from 3 liters of milk
Honey as 150 grams
Blend the roasted almonds with some Kaju, olive oil, date stones powder & honey, prepare the Halal Cottage Cheese & preserve its whey protein to be used later for making your curries.
Combine the Cheese & blended almonds in a food processor, within few minutes, you will have a paste type Kalaqand that should be fried in Ghee for 20 minutes at low heat, the extra moistures will evaporate & you will have a thick Kalaqand, refrigerate till it solidifies more & cut either in cubes or make round balls.
A perfect recipe that is rich in Calcium & Magnesium.
