Paal Mittai ( Milk Sweet )
A favourite sweet in our house hold. For years, I have been making this sweet. Very delicious, gooey, soft, only very few ingredients. The cooking time will be approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
Wishing You All A Very Happy , Safe and a Fun Filled Deepavali.
Boiled, full fat milk – 3 big cups
Sugar – 2 big cups
Ghee – 1 big cup
Besan ( Channa dhal flour ) – 2 tablespoons ( sieved )
Heat a big , broad , thick bottomed pan. Add in the milk, sugar and the ghee. Once the mix boils, keep on medium flame.
Let the mixture boil till it becomes thick. Sprinkle the besan little by little. Cook on high flame. Keep stirring continuously. The mix will thicken and will start to bubble all around the sides of the pan. Take little mix from the pan and put it in a plate. Cool. If you roll it it will form to a soft ball. This is the correct consistency. Now the Sweet is ready. Switch off the stove. Mix well for 2 minutes. Pour into a greased tray. Cool little. Mark squares or any shape of your choice. Run the knife all around the sides of the tray. Take out a piece . Now you can take out all the pieces with ease. Store in an airtight container. Serve and enjoy with your family.
1) While mixing the Sweet in the end, the flame has to be high. It will splatter. Use an oven mitten to protect your hand. The hot mix might sprinkle on your hand.
2) The texture of this Sweet is very soft and chewy.
