THIRATTUPAAL(Milk and Jaggery sweet) (Food remake)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Being and integrated country, India is famous for its unity in diversity.  Each state has its own culture. In each state, there are many mini India with rich culture of their own to follow. The blogging world has introduced such wonderful customs, food and recipes to each other and brought us together.
THIRATTUPAAL is one of the recipe which has a very sweet custom with it. Shanti of Shanthi Krishnakumar's cook book has shared this recipe in her blog. 
Read in her words:
This is a traditional Tamil brahmin sweet and is made on all important days. In Iyengar marriages, there is a lovely function. The bride is given a small cup of thirattupaal and will be asked to distribute it to all the people available. Elders tell her that if she distributes to everyone, she can run the family within the means effectively. It is a great deal to make very small balls, like a chickpea, out of it and to distribute it to everyone.
Isn't it sweet!
She has explained it very well with step step by photos. Visit her for detailed recipe.
Here is my post.
I used only half a litre of milk where as Shanti has used 3 litres of milk.
Ingredients :
My measurements:
Milk - half a litre
Jaggery - 1/4 cup or less, crushed or grated or powdered
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
Ghee - 1 tsp
hey! hey! Wait, I can send this to the event "Celebrate sweets- Sugarless sweets"!!! Yes, Now,When I typed Jaggery, it flashed to me!!
  • Boil the milk in a thick bottomed vessel. 
  • Keep a small plate in it to prevent the charring of the milk.
  • Boil the milk till it becomes almost half and gets curdled.
  • Remove the plate and add jaggery. 
  • Mix well. Add cardamom powder. 
  • Add ghee and keep on stirring it the jaggery get mixed well with the milk and starts leaving the sides.
  • Remove from the heat and transfer it into the serving bowl.
Tasted real heaven. Amazing.
I am going to make it again very soon!!
Thank you Shantiji for such a wonderful recipe.
Sending this to 
Sara's ongoing event 
which is started by me.

Keep Smiling,
