Prep Time – 10 Mins
Cooking Time – 30 – 35 Mins
Milk – 1 litre (2% or Whole milk)
Karupatti (Palm Jaggery) – 400 ml (300 grams)
Lemon juice – 1 teaspoon (Optional)
STEP 1: In a thick bottom deep pan add 1 litre milk and cook on medium heat.
STEP 2: Add the Karupatti pieces to a microwave safe bowl and add 100 ml of water and microwave for 5 minutes or until the palm jaggery melts completely.
STEP 3: Let the jaggery mixture cool down and filter the mixture to remove impurities as palm jaggery is unrefined.
STEP 4: Once the milk starts boiling add the filtered palm jaggery mixture to the milk little by little and you should see the milk getting curdled. Sometimes the milk may not curdle even after adding the jaggery mixture so to make the milk curdle add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice.
STEP 5: Once the milk is completely curdled, cook on low heat till the mixture condenses.
