Milk kova has a special place in our Indian sweets. It is a delicious sweet made from milk and sugar. This milk kova is very famous in two places. One is Srivilliputhur Andal paal kova and another is Madurai meenakshi paal kova. My favorite is madurai paal kova. I love it. Wow.. Even if I think of it,  its mouthwatering. I got this recipe from my sister (Latha akka). I really thank her for this wonderful and easy recipe.


Sweetened condensed milk - 1 can (14 oz)
Curd - 1 1/2 tbsp
Elachi powder - a pinch
Shredded Almonds - 2(optional)
Shredded Pistachio - 2 (optional)


For soft milk kova in the bowl :

  1. Pour condensed milk in the microwave safe bowl.
  2. Microwave it for 5 minutes. (Stir it for every 2 minutes).
  3. Once condensed milk is thicker and gets bubble, add curd, elachi powder and mix well. 
  4. Microwave it for 2 more minutes. (But stir it every single minute).
  5. Once it comes to soft and milk kova consistency, you can transfer it to the bowl or air tight container.
  6. Garnish it with almonds and pistachio.
  7. Enjoy milk kova in the bowl.

For milk kova into pieces :

  1. Do steps from 1 to 4 under the heading "For soft milk kova in the bowl".
  2. In the mean time, grease a plate or tray with ghee.
  3. Microwave it for 1 or 2 more minutes. It will be little thicker consistency than the previous method.
  4. Pour the milk kova on the greased plate or tray.
  5. Garnish it with almonds and pistachio.
  6. Allow it to cool. Grease the knife with ghee.
  7. After 20 - 30 minutes, roll the knife on to the milk kova and make them into pieces.
  8. Enjoy milk kova in pieces.


  1. You can get soft textured milk kova from the first method " For soft milk kova in the bowl".
  2. IF you like chewy texture, you can try the second method "For milk kova into pieces". But it won't be much chewy.
