Paal Kova Recipe – Without White Sugar

Paal Kova Recipe:

To try a paal Kova recipe without white sugar has been on my list for a long time. As we don’t consume milk, we had some milk leftover this week and I experimented paal kova recipe with jaggery. Trying this recipe was held back because most people were complaining of milk getting curdled when added to tea or coffee while boiling and I have always used jaggery after bringing the dish to room temperature only. With paal Kova recipe you have to basically cook the sweetener and allow to thicken.
