Microwave Palkova - happy father's day!

Palkova is a very popular milk sweet. It is my dad's favourite sweet. My husband loves it too. So I thought what better to make for Father's day than Palkova. I wish my dad were here with us to share this.... Next time he comes to stay with us, I am definitely making it.

Palgova involves stirring milk for a long time till it thickens into a solid. It takes an hour or so usually and involves continuous stirring. When I saw the recipe for Microwave Palkova in Vardini's site, I knew I had to try it. Check her site for step by step illustrations. Super easy recipes with just 3 ingredients

The background is a tie made by my son for my husband!


Sweetened Condensed Milk 1 can (i had a 400gm can)
Curd/Yogurt 2 tsp
Ghee 1 tsp

Method of Preparation

1. Take all the above ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. I used a big pyrex bowl .The bowl should be deep as the milk will keep boiling over.

2. Heat for 2 minutes. Keep an eye on it all the time. If it rises, take out and stir and continue with the minute.

3. Do it again for 1 minute. Stir and put it back in. Keep doing this till your palgova attains a grainy texture and is not watery.

4. Microwave times will vary. Vardhini in her post mentions 5 minutes. It took me 8 minutes. Keep in mind that it hardens when it starts to cool. So you want it to be a little bit guey when you stop stirring.


  1. Perfect treat for Father's day. Looks inviting Roshni.
