Milk Khoa / Palkova Recipe

Milk Khoa / Palkova is one of those comforting milk sweets enjoyed by all! The best part about this recipe is that it can be cooked within 8 – 12  minutes (depending upon the microwave power level) whereas the traditional method takes about 2 – 3 hours. For all those purists, who do not believe in this style, I promise to post the traditional method soon. Enjoy this easy version which is almost authentic in taste.


Milk powder – 2 cups

Fresh full cream – 1 cup

Sugar – 1 cup

Cardamom powder – a pinch

Saffron – 2 – 3 threads


The time mentioned below depends on your microwave power level.

Take a big microwaveable bowl and mix well the milk powder, fresh cream and sugar without any lumps.

Close the microwaveable bowl with a lid and cook in the microwave for 3-4 minutes. Make sure the mixture does not overflow from the bowl.

Remove the bowl and stir the mixture and keep it in the microwave again with the lid closed for another 1-2 minutes.

Remove and stir again and keep it back in the microwave this time without closing the bowl for another 2 – 3 minutes.

Now remove, stir and check whether it has reached the milk khoa / palkova consistency. Now add cardamom powder and crush the saffron threads with your thumb by placing it on your hand and add it to the milk khoa / palkova.

The tasty milk khoa is ready for you to relish in less than 10 minutes.
