Palkova is an Indian dessert made out of full fat milk and sugar. It is extremely addictive and delicious!
I used the UHT milk to make this and the results were as good. I is painful to actually sit and keep stirring the milk. You turn your back for a few seconds and the milk boils over and ruins your stove! I got a good muscle workout ......was stirring the milk for almost an hour!!!

It can be stored in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Just pop it into the microwave and eat it warm.

full cream milk - 1 litre
sugar - 1/4 cup
ghee - 2 tbsp
cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp


  • in a heavy bottomed broad pan start boiling the milk on medium to low flame, stirring almost continuously so that it doesn't stick to the pan.
  • the quantity of the milk will reduce. keep stirring till it thickens like in the picture below.

  • At the point add the sugar. Now the consistency will become slightly loose. Stir for about 2 minutes.
  • Add ghee and the cardamom powder and keep stirring.
  • The mixture will slowly start leaving the sides of the vessel .
  • When it becomes thick switch off the flame. it will become thicker when it cools down. so make sure you switch it off earlier.
