Microwave Paalkova/Paalkova in 10 minutes/Milk Kova/Therattupaal

Hello Friends,

Today I am going to share a very delectable and mouth-watering Paal kova, furthermore can be made in 10 minutes in a microwave. This paalkova recipe really proves anyone and everyone can cook a wonderful dessert in no time. And also friends I am going on vacation to India for about 4 weeks and will be back with great recipes. I will surely be missing my co-bloggers, readers, friends, subscribers and every one of you a lot. So I am wishing each and every one of you a very Happy Christmas and a very Happy New Year  in advance with this sweet Paalkova. Please keep visiting and enjoy your holidays as well.

Here’s how to make Paalkova with step by step photos…


Condensed Milk
1 tin [400 gms]
3 tbsp
2 tsp
Cardamom powder/Elachi powder
2 big pinches
Nuts [of your choice]
For garnishing
Preparation time: 1 minute
Cooking time: 9 minutes   
Serves            : 4 to 5


Pour the condensed milk to a microwave safe bowl. Keep it in the microwave for 2 minutes.

Now add the yogurt/curd and mix well. 

Keep it in the microwave for another 2 minutes. Now it will look a little curdled.

Put it back in the microwave for another 2 minutes, then remove it and stir. The mixture will look more curdled and you will see some water.

Add the ghee and cardamom powder and keep it in the microwave for another 3 minutes, stirring at one minute interval.

If you find some more water left, keep it in the microwave for another minute. I had little water left in the paalkova so I filtered it.

Finally garnish it with the finely chopped nuts of your choice [pistas or almonds].
Delicious Paalkova is ready to be enjoyed.

I will very soon post the traditional and authentic paalkova of TamilNadu very soon.
