Blog Hop by Radhika I was paired with Roshini. She has a wonderful blog with so many tempting dishes but the moment I saw this, I knew this is it as I have so many special memories connected with this dish. Palgova always takes me back to my mother's kitchen. I was lucky to grow up in a family which owned many cows. We used to get so much milk that even after our daily consumption, my mum had to think up ways to use up the rest. Come summer and it would be ice creams, custards or payasams; but in the rainy season she made Palgova. My brothers and me used to eat platefuls of this week after week and never got tired of this.
It typically used to be a lengthy process making palgova from scratch. But these days when you no longer has the patience to stand for hours stirring the milk, you can always opt for short-cuts like these. And these do taste as yummy as the ones made from scratch.
