    Anu's Note:

    This is a rich South Indian sweet that my mom makes perfectly every time! Thertipaal is a type of "fudge" made of basically 3 ingredients: milk, milk powder, and sugar. It is often made during Indian festivals as a holy offering to the Gods. Unlike American fudges, this does not "set", and has the texture of rather gooey fudge. It is rather time-consuming, but well worth the effort! Caution: It's rather heavy on your tummy, so go easy on it... even though you won't want to stop eating this! :-)

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Boil milk in a heavy-bottomed pot and then lower the flame to medium.
    2. 2
      Let the milk simmer till it reduces to one-fourth of the original quantity (about 30 minutes), stirring every 5 minutes for a whole minute.
    3. 3
      Make a thick paste of the milk powder with 1 cup water.
    4. 4
      Add it to the reduced milk and again bring it to a boil, stirring continuously.
    5. 5
      Simmer again for 10 minutes.
    6. 6
      Now add sugar, mix well, bring to a boil, and then reduce flame to a simmer.
    7. 7
      After about 20 minutes, when the mixture reduces into a coarse, thick batter (almost lumpy, like dense muffin-batter), remove from flame.
    8. 8
      Let it stand until cooled to room temperature.
    9. 9
      Spoon into dessert bowls and serve warm, or chilled.
