therattipal / microwave paal kova / paal halwa

Microwave therattipal / paal kova recipe with step-wise pictures. Therattipal is my favorite sweet from childhood and I remember having it almost daily in sweet shop near our home when I was in school. Our house is near bus stand surrounded by shops so after school I enjoy having my snacks in shops nearby. Such a lovely days to cherish. This palkova recipe reminds me of those days.

This is my first try in microwave though I made it many times on stove top which would take nearly 1 hour of time for 1 litre of milk. But this is such a quick recipe and comes out exactly in same taste. This is an ideal recipe when you don’t have much time to prepare for any festival. I have made small ladoos with this theratipal for Shravanthi.

3. Stir it and again keep it in microwave high for 2 minutes. The mixture will rise well to top so take big deep bowl.
