Palkova Recipe

Palkova can be made in 10mins taking the short route of using microwave oven, but I don't have chances for that as I don't own a microwave, also I always want to try recipes the traditional way atleast for the first time....will take shortcuts after that ;) So here is my traditional stove top method for making palkova.I agree it is sure time consuming and painstaking but worth the effort, you will agree with me only when you taste it.I have seen and heard from friends that palkova is Gokulashtami special so thought its the right time to post this palkova recipe which is lying in my drafts since a yr.

  5. See the bottom it is clean, stirring often will not let Palkova burn / stick to the bottom.Now reduce the flame to lowest as at this stage there is more chances of burning.When its slightly goey with very little moisture add sugar at this stage.Now sugar will melt making it goey keep the flame in low and keep cooking.
