Colostrum milk sweet is a special pudding or cake prepared with colostrum milk that cow produces for the first few days after it delivers calf. This milk is rich in antibodies, proteins, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins. It makes the immune system stronger. The milk is thick and pale yellow in color. This cake or pudding can be prepared by boiling the milk or steaming it in cooker or idli steamer. I remember eating this seem paal in my grandma house some years back when we had our own cow and loved it. I was searching for this milk in many places and fortunate to get it in this vacation to our native. Though it is not available nowadays in many places, you have to try this delicious pudding at least once.
