Jhatpat Tarattipaal

This is one of the most time consuming simple dishes that kids and adults love alike. It is traditionally made by simmering milk for a long time while continiously stirring it and then adding just the sugar to it. At the end of the simmering process ( you reduce a litre of milk to less than r equal to 1/4 litre of milk.) when you add the sugar the milk gets split and that gives the sweet the rquired texture. Traditionally a litre of milk requires a glass of sugar.

Here I have used condensed milk and used the microwave and thereby reduced the cooking time from about an hour to 6-7 minutes. Also reduce the effort of constantly stirring it.


1 can condensed milk
1 tbsp Milk powder (Nido/dry milk powder)
2 tsp curd
1 big tsp ghee


In a big bowl mix all the ingredients for the dish and place the bowl in the microwave. Cook it on full power for 5 -7 minutes keeping a close watch on it so that it does not overflow stirring every now and then. It will soon curdle and get to the required consistency very soon.
