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. In today's recipe, i'm going to share about a simple two-ingredient recipe which uses cow's milk - its palkova aka thirattupaal (sweet khoya). 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. Choose the right vessel for this dish and you would be rest assured a hassle free recipe. Let's get into recipe and the steps. You can use full cream milk or buffalo's milk instead of cow's milk. 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
