Thertipaal/ Palkova

With Gokhulasthami very near, Β 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 πŸ™ 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. Β For now, let’s go to this recipe. 😊

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