Happy Srirama Navami!

Pala Kova And Kalakand


To make Pala Kova and kalakand:


Boil I liter fresh full cream milk in a heavy bottomed vessel or deep nonstick pan on a medium flame…Keep stirring…

Once the milk gets thicker, lower the flame…
The milk starts changing in colour and turns light brown and gets more thicker…


Keep stirring…



Now the milk gets more thicker…If you want to make pala kova, at this point, add 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon of ghee and a pinch of cardamom powder to it…Heat it on a low flame until the sugar dissolves with continuous stirring. Once it gets thicker, turn off the stove. Alllow it to cool and make it into small thick circles…Palakova is ready now…


Transfer it into a cup…From one liter milk after boiling almost two hours with continuous stirring, you will get this cup of fresh kova…
