  • 1/2 gallon - Milk (about 2 litres)
  • 1.5 cups - Sugar (as per taste)
  • 2 tbsp - Ghee
  • How to Make Pal Kova:

    1. Heat the milk in a heavy bottomed pan. Bring it to a boil.
    2. Once it starts boiling, lower the heat to med-low.
    3. Stir it once every 10 mins to make sure that the milk does not stick to the bottom.
    4. The milk, in about an hour and half or so, will slowly start reducing in volume and turn a sandalwood yellow colour.
    5. After 2 hours or so, it thickens.
    6. Stir on a continuous basis. Otherwise it will stick to the bottom.
    7. Add sugar at this point and keep stirring for another 20-30 mins.
    8. When the consistency looks like you can almost roll a ball with it, remove it from the pan, add ghee, stir it well and serve.
