Milk halwa recipe, Paal halwa

Milk halwa/ Paal halwa is a delicious Indian dessert prepared with milk, sugar and flavored with cardamom. This paal halwa is very easy to prepare halwa as it will be done in one pot and with handful everyday ingredients only. I learnt this yummy milk halwa/ kavva from my MIL who makes excellent sweets and desserts.

This sweet can be made anytime you have extra milk/ milk nearing expiry date (in current lockdown situation when we have extra milk and if it is close to expiry) or when the milk is even spoiled. Yes you heard it right! In this recipe we will actually curdle the milk for its making so if you have curdled milk already then you can skip adding curd to the recipe and make this sweet easily.

This sweet looks like palkova/ thirattipaal but tastes absolutely different and yummy as well. So next time you have curdled milk try this easy sweet if you are bored making paneer/ rasgulla/ rasmalai or want to try something new. So let’s get to the making!
