Welcome, sweet september ^^
I've had my eyes on these sweets for months now! Every time I visit the indian restaurant for our usual banana leaf rice, I've been wanting to try some.. but always putting it off because of the big packing/quantity (and price!) for a first try.
Well, these yummies are called palkova (pal cake), so they tell me.. a kind of milk burfi. And how would I know that they are yummy? Well, I finally took the plunge and bought some yesterday after our banana leaf rice dinner (^^).
Unlike the more common pink coconut candies where you can always buy in small quantities, these milk candies are pre-packed and sold in plastic tubs/containers.. and they are very much pricier. But I feel they are worth the price, now that I've tasted some. (^^)
They taste very smooth and milky, and almost melt in the mouth.. except for a touch of coarseness before it all melts on the tongue. I wasn't sure why, till I googled some recipes and found that there's most likely some semolina (sugee/rava) meal in the sweets. Anyway, they are perfectly sweet.. not tooth-achingly so, unlike some indian sweets (^^||). And best of all, there's no trace of spice.. just the goodness of milk ^^.
I've googled some recipes online and it doesn't look very complicated.. but I think I'll leave this to the experts and stick to store-bought ones ^^!
Anyways, if you still can't imagine how it tastes like, just think milk fudge ^^. A very very delicious milk fudge! (^^)
