Instant Paalkova (with just 2 Ingredients)

Deepavali is finished but still I want to share a sweet recipe that can be whipped up in less than 5 minutes. You just need condensed milk and yogurt. Yes it is as easy as that. This can be done either in microwave or on stove top. It tastes perfectly like the traditional Paalkova. As it saves a lot of time and is a perfect shotcut for the long process, why not try this.

Many may have known the technique before. I came to know that it is so easy to whip up a Paalkova in such a short notice only when we were in cairo. When I was searching other recipes in youtube I happened to see a channel’s video of making this and was amazed. Really it is a blessing in these fast paced days. Enough of the praisings and lets get to the recipe.

My little one(SANTOSH) sometimes will suddenly ask me amma I want sweet. Give me this and give me that will be his demand. This is my rescuing recipe that comes together in five to ten minutes. You can actually make condensed milk at home in minutes. Will post the recipe soon.

Ingredients

  • Condensed Milk – 1 tin (14 Oz – Almost 400g)
  • Yogurt – 2 tbsp. (Thick and not sour)

METHOD

  • Take all your ingredients ready.
  • Open the condensed milk tin and transfer the contents into a deep microwave safe bowl.
  • Now add two tablespoons of thick yogurt and mix everything well.
  • Microwave the contents for 2 minutes. Then open and scrape the sides and repeat it at 30 seconds interval until you get the desired consistency as shown.
  • Serve the Paalkova warm or chilled. It tastes good either way.

Note :  The time depends on the condensed milk and yogurt consistency. So don’t panic if it doesn’t come along within five minutes. Mine got ready in 4 minutes.

Using a taller microwave bowl prevents from overflowing of the contents while microwaving.

Don’t use plastic microwavable containers – use glass. Can use a glass measuring jar also.

While using glass bowl hadle with care as it will be very hot.

Adding yogurt gives the grainy texture so it is a must.

Adding fresh and not so sour yogurt is very important. If you add sour yogurt then the taste becomes sour rather than sweet.

Some add butter but if you have made the condensed milk at home then you know some amount of butter goes in making it. So no need to add extra.

If you don’t have a microwave no need to worry follow all the steps as given on a stove top in medium flame.

    1. True I also wanted to post this before Diwali but couldn’t. Apologies. But you can try one day. One tin of condensed milk will not make too much of the sweet. It is just enough for two servings. Thanks for dropping by. Happy weekend. 😊
