5 Quick & Easy Raksha Bandhan Sweet Recipes

The bond that a brother and sister share is like no other in the world. In India, we celebrate Raksha Bandhan every year to honour this incredibly special bond. 

This year, 2024, the festival is on August 19th. Like any other Indian festival, after the thread-tying ceremony is over, families celebrate the special occasion, enjoy a special meal, and make some special sweets to make the day sweeter. 

So, if you are looking for sweet ideas for Rakhi, we have your back. In this blog, we discuss 5 simple, super tasty, sweet recipes that will literally make the celebration sweeter! 

Bread Kalakand 

Kalakand is a popular sweet made of milk, and it is loved by all. But making the authentic kalakand may take a lot of time, and if you want to enjoy the same feeling of having a kalakand but do not want to spend a lot of time making it, you can make bread kalakand. 

It takes much lesser time to make it and tastes just as tasty as the original recipe. And for a sweet occasion like Raksha Bandhan, it can make the day even sweeter. 

Ingredients needed 

  • Sugar
  • Milk
  • Cardamom powder
  • Saffron
  • Nuts – almonds, cashews, pista
  • Bread loaf 


  • First, make the Rabdi by boiling the milk and reducing it to one-third of its quantity. Stir the milk periodically so that it does not burn and stick to the vessel.
  • Now, once the milk is reduced and slightly thickened, add the sugar and cardamom powder and mix it well. Keep stirring until the sugar is melted completely.
  • Take the milk off the heat and add the saffron strands and chopped dried fruits. Give the mixture a good mix and let it cool.
  • Cut the sides off the bread slices and keep them aside.
  • In a large stray, pour one portion of the rabdi mixture on it to create a base. Now lay the bread pieces on top. Again, pour the rabdi on top of the bread, and create at least three layers.
  • Garnish with some more dried fruits on top and refrigerate it for about 1 hour.
  • Once the bread has soaked up, the Rabdi mixture is nice and cool. Cut the Kalakand into small square cubes and indulge.
