Thertipaal/ Palkova

With Gokhulasthami very near, ย I thought of making some milk sweet for the favorite god Krishna. This festival is celebrated with great pomp all over India. We draw small Krishna feet from the door till the place where the idol is kept. In most parts of the countries dahi handi is being conducted wherein high pots with butter is placed and people form the prism and break them. Traditionally seedai, both sweet and salty is made at many South Indian houses but my experience with them is ๐Ÿ™ as they didn’t work the last time I tried. Maybe some other time.

Today I am sharing the famous Thertipaal recipe. OK it requires lots of patience, but trust me the end result is worth all the wait and pain. There are short cuts to make them too, that recipe shall share sometime soon. ย For now, let’s go to this recipe. ๐Ÿ˜Š



Makes one medium cup


Full cream milk : 1.5 liters

Sugar:4 tbsp

Cardamom: 1 tsp

Method :

1. Take a wide bottom pan and add the milk

2. Keep boiling till you see the solids. Keep stirring and scraping the sides.

3. Add sugar and cardamom.


Notes: It would take more than a ย hour on medium flame to reach the desired consistency.

Keep it stirring and scraping the sides. It’s good arm work ๐Ÿ˜›


Wishing you all a Happy Gokhulasthami.. Jai Shri Krishna..






Hi This is my chance to introduce myself. I am Parvathi, the author/owner of this space. I blog here about recipes that are simple yet tasty. I try to improvise on recipes without compromising on taste. Cooking is my passion. Though I am not very perfect, I love the imperfections and as they say โ€œthereโ€™s always scope of betterโ€. I like to follow that. I believe thereโ€™s a story for each recipe and the way it is developed. Also creativity is the secret ingredient of cooking. My inspiration for cooking comes from my mom. As cliched as it sounds, for me she is the best cook. ๐Ÿ™‚ Cooking for me is a stress buster. Hoping this space help you too whip some amazing dishes and earn praises from your loved ones.
