खरवस - ( Milk Pudding )


खरवस - मराठी पाककृती

Ingrediets : 

1 litre .......... colostrum milk ( milk given by a cow / buffalo who has just given birth to a baby )
1 n 1/2 cup ......... grated jaggery
1 tsp ............. cardamom / nutmeg pd






Method :

Dissolve the grated jaggery in the milk properly .
Add to it cardamom or nutmeg powder .
Put the mixture in a vessel in a cooker and steam for 20/25 mintures without pressure .
Cut into pieces when completely cold .


Tip : 

1) If the colostrum milk is very thick add 2 cups normal milk and accordingly increase the proportion of jaggery .
2) Nowadays usually the colostrum milk which we get in cities is already diluted by adding normal milk and in that case no need to add additional milk .
