Paal / Milk Cake

Paal / Milk Cake is a famous South Indian dessert, it can be made for special occasions and served at parties.

Are you bored of making regular Gulab jamuns for special occasions, Then this dessert is for you. They are so juicy and soft. It has melt in the mouth texture, the steps are very quick and easy.

The dessert is egg free and the creamy goodness from Yudelo Creamy Milk flavor just elevates the dessert. Check out their flavors here.

And not to forget the subtly sweet cardamom and rose infused jaggery syrup poured over the fried paal/milk cake when they are still warm.

Am sure you can visualize the beautiful and delicious dessert. You can alternate the maida with wheat flour, if you are thinking of a healthy version.
