Microwave Palkova /Palgova

For this month's 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.
Recipe Source:Roshini's Kitchen
Sweetened condensed milk - 1 can
Ghee/butter - 1 tbs to 2 tbs
Curd - 3 tbs
Mix all ingredients in a thick and deep glass bowl .Microwave for 2 minutes ,Keep an eye on this all the time. If it rises, take out and stir and continue.Now microwave for at 1 minute intervals and stir after every minute.Continue this till your palgova  gets thick, and attains a golden brown  color and starts letting ghee out.Serve garnished with nuts of your choice.
Microwave times will vary. So you may reach your desired consistency by 5 or 8 or even 10 minutes,so keep an eye from 5 minutes.
Sending this over to Blog Hop Wednesdays
