A week before, we were just sitting back and enjoying a family movie time, when suddenly my kids & hubby expressed their desire to enjoy something sweet…I always have a special corner for most delicious palkova (milk sweet) and I have been thinking to make this for a while, then I thought, why not I try this one! It would be a nice sunday sweet, though it is little time consuming to make, but its worth all the effort. Making palkova has always made be nostalgic!
Palkova – Palgova Recipe | Thirattupal Recipe – Thickened Sweetened Milk Sweet
Cook Time : 2 to 3 hours
Sugar : 2 cup or adjust to your taste
Ghee : 4 tbsp

- If you get raw milk that would be perfect, pasteurized and ultra-pasteurized takes longer to thicken.
- When boiling milk you can add steel spoon or small steel bowl to the pan to avoid sticking. It seems to help though that does not completely eliminate the need to stir.
- It keeps well in the refrigerator covered in wax paper.
