Kesar Milk Halwa/Saffron Milk Halwa

Milk Halwa aka Thiratti paal is my most favourite sweets among all varieties of milk sweets exists in our Indian cuisine. Though thiratti paal asks for a long cooking process, i dont mind to make this ultimate sweet at home whenever i feel like having few spoons. Trust me i have even spend more than half an hour for cooking two cups of milk to get this beautiful sweet. I love it that much, my neighbour gave me full fat organic milk few days back as her daughter owns a organic farm. Obviously i couldnt resist to make my favourite thiratti paal with that organic milk.Actually thiratti paal is almost like paal khova but lemon juice is added in final stage of cooking to make this halwa.Nothing can beat this fantastic milk sweet, enjoy it at room temperature or chilled, all will definitely fallen in love with this sweet.

As i told earlier, today's post is going to be a part of this week's blogging marathon as am running this week's blogging marathon with Indian Mithai as theme. Coming to this Milk halwa, this sweet asks for easy ingredients though the cooking process goes time consuming.However if you have sweet tastebuds, this halwa will definitely please them. This halwa makes an excellent sweet to share with your loved ones.Though many versions of milk halwa exists, i love this traditional way of preparing this halwe. Even a microwave method of milk halwa do exists and its quite easier to prepare as this microwave version is prepared simply with sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice or curd to make. If you want this quick version, do check my chocolate thiratti paal.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#61.
