Pal Khova/ Milk Kova

Pal Khova is one of our favorite dessert during childhood days. Just taught of making this since we cant get fresh khova here. I never knew that this would take such a long time for me to get the delicious khova. Oh my God. It killed my time. But was really satisfied with the outcome. Very comforting dessert. We enjoyed it.

You will need:

  • 4 cups milk
  • 3 tbsp ghee
  • ¾ cup sugar (can go upto 1 cup sugar)
  • 1 tbsp rava/sooji (optional)
  • saffron(optional)
  • More patience!!!!! (very important!!)
Step 1:

Heat a heavy bottom pan , add milk, sugar and ghee to it. Stir it for 30 mins. Stirring occasionally. After 30 mins increase the heat and stir it continuously (just to avoid lump formation) . When its boiling just reduce the heat and then again increase it. Its a bit hard work. But the result will satisfy you!!!!.

Step 2:

Now add rava and saffron to it and continuously stir it. At this stage the mixture will look like this.

Step 3:

Now totally after 1.30 hours of hard work, the mixture will reduce to 1 cup of khova. At this stage you can see some vigorous bubbles too.. Now transfer the mixture to a buttered cookie sheet and pour the mixture to it. Allow it to cool for some time.

Step 4:

Using Pizza cutter just cut it into desired shape or just using ghee roll it into desired shape and enjoy your day. You will surely enjoy the outcome after 1.30 hours of hard work.
