Hi friends, I am here with my 75th post. Just started as play and reached here with all your support and encouragement. To celebrate this I wanted to share some authentic dessert. So posting this Srivilliputhur Palkova. Srivilliputhur in Tamil Nadu is popular for both temple and Palkova. Palkova is nothing but Milk Peda. Whoever has been born and brought up in Tamil Nadu would have tasted this delicacy at least once in their lifetime.
Palkova is a milk sweet. You may find a lot of milk peda varieties. But Palkova is the simplest form of all. I have already posted the Easy Microwave Peda using milk powder and condensed milk. Today I want to share the traditional method of making palkova. This takes almost 2 to 2 1/2 hours to prepare this. You can make it with just three simple ingredients – milk, sugar and, cardamom.
Milk, freshly churned from dairy farms around the town, is boiled over firewood stoves, which are fed with cashew nut shells. The milk is simmered for over an hour, with caution taken to ensure it does not char the vessel. As it begins to solidify, sugar is added and stirred, till it reaches a semi-solid state. Then it is cooled and packed. Some make it with a rough texture, some smooth, some white and some brownish (color changes when milk is simmered for long). I like to have smooth and silky texture. Now let us see how to prepare this palkova at home.
Delicious creamiest, silkiest Srivilliputhur Palkova is ready to relish.
