  • Condensed Milk - 1 tin 400 g | 14 oz
  • Ghee - 1 teaspoon
  • Thick Curd/ Plain Yogurt - 1 tablespoon


  • • In a large microwave safe glass bowl, combine all the ingredients and Mix well
  • • Microwave for 2 minutes, Stir well and microwave for another 1 minutes; Stir again and microwave for 1 more minute
  • • Continue the step till the sides dried up and there are bubbles in the middle. At this stage mixing the Palgova results in grainy texture (sand-like). Microwave at home took 7 minutes totally. Watch out after after 5 minutes. Let it cool for 6-7 minutes, instant Palgova is ready:-)

  1. Time may differ from microwave to microwave
  2. Use a large microwave bowl as Palkova raises a lot - almost double the volume while cooking
  3.  Can use butter instead of ghee
  4. Cardamom powder and nuts can be added for extra flavor
  5. Can add cocoa Powder for chocolate palgova
  6.  Can add vanilla extracts For additional taste
  7. A friend tried with non-fat condensed milk and told it turned out good
  8. Always consume the palgova after cooling
  9. Always use thick curd. If the curd is watery it will affect palgova consistency
  10. Avoid microwaving continuously, you might burn the palgova. It is very important to stir the palgova well in regular intervals
