Palkova is a popular milk based delicacy from Srivilliputhur made with just 2 ingredients.This is the traditional way of making Palkova,it is bit time consuming but worth trying.
Milk is boiled and evaporated in a heavy bottomed vessel until it is reduced to half its quantity and then sugar is added for taste ,you can also add Kedar or cardamom for flavour.
