Palkova / Thirattupaal/ Sweet Khoya

Homemade sweets are always special as you have control over the sweetness ( well, i agree you cannot compromise on the sugar added to a sweet recipe) however we can assure brown sugar or jaggery could be substituted wherever possible and free of food colors and any other preservatives.

The process is quite cumbersome, however with a heavy bottomed non-stick pan, you can skip stirring quite often and sit back and watch while it gets simmered without being burnt.

Cow's milk gives the best of taste you can ever get! Happy ready and hope you try out this recipe at your home and share your valuable feedback. Ingredients
