Home made Milkmaid

Last week there was a thanksgiving potluck in my daughters school. I thought of a few dishes to make and had decided on masala vada. At the last minute I discovered that I was running low on channa dal and I had forgotten to buy extra. I thought hard as to what to do? That night I spoke to mother in law and she suggested that I make malai jamun with home made kova. I tried to make kova that night. I was tired and I wanted to finish the kova that night and make the jamun next day.Because of tiredness i finished the milk making milkmaid without adding sugar.
Making milkmaid at home is a little hectic with work involved but when u think about ingredients you need only milk .




Preparation time:50 min
Yields:1/2 cup

Ingredients:
  • 4 cups milk
Method:
  • Pour the milk in heavy bottom vessel (may or may not be non stick)
  • Let the milk come to boil.
  • After it comes to boil reduce the heat almost very low.
  • Stir it every 5 min for 40 min.
  • After 40 min when it will start to thicken (it needs to reduce to 1/8 the original quantity)
  • At this point keep stirring it continuously.
  • When it becomes thick switch off the flame .
  • Cool and store it in fridge.
  • You can use it to make coco fudge /kheer/rich gravies. 


                                            I made cocoa and coconut fudge using this milkmaid.

  2. This is what we call rabri....tastes awesome, and very common in North Indian households.but it's not milkmaid, though a great attempt. Milkmaid technically has butter, sugar and milk powder. Some people also add water. It's cooked and filtered. The butter gives it the consistency. Hopes this helps :) I hope you didn't mind. Feel free to delete if you like :)
