Paalkova/Therattupaal/Milk Halwa(Microwave Method)

Paalkova is a delicious,tempting sweet which is made by boiling and condensing the milk with sugar.Originally paalkova preparation is a lengthy process to condense the milk and take hours to make.But this exotic sweet can be made with lesser number of ingredients in 10-15 minutes in the microwave oven.Here is the recipe......


Condensed milk1 tin
Cardamom/ellakai Powder1tsp
Cashews/Almonds(finely chopped)to garnish
Pistachios(finely chopped)to garnish


                                       Take the condensed milk in a wide microwave safe bowl and microwave it for 3 minutes,stirring in between twice.Now add the curd and keep in the microwave for 6-7 minutes.Stir in every minute of interval.
Finally add the cardamom powder and ghee to the mixture and mix it well.
Keep it in the microwave for a minute.Let it sit for 5 minutes.
Paalkova is ready to enjoy.


  • Use the fresh curd otherwise the sweet will be slightly sour in taste.
  • After adding the cardamom powder  and ghee do not cook it for more than a minute.It will get thicken after cooling.
  • The cooking time varies from oven to oven,take every minute from the microwave and check for the consistency.
  • The paalkova becomes harder if it is over cooked.
