Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first...

Since this is my first recipe post, i thought why not start with a sweet. Paal therattipaal is a milk sweet made mostly in south india. It is so so good that you cannot stop eating one spoon. My mom makes this sweet during many fiesta's and the container would be emptied within a day. It's an all time favourite in my home since everyone is fond of sweets. Usually it takes one to two hours to make therattipaal based on the quantity of milk. It's really tiresome but the end product is Mmm.. good. Can you believe if i say that we can make this within 10 minutes? Yes, this method of making therattipaal was told by my aunt living in Harrisburg. I visited them on New year's eve and she made this sweet for us within minutes. So, thought of sharing this to you all. Surprise your guests by making this within minutes!!!

Sweetened Condensed Milk - 1 Can(396 g)
Curd - 2 tbsp
Ghee - 1 tbsp

In a microwave safe container, add condensed milk and curd. Mix well and place in microwave for 3 minutes. Stir in every one minute. Remove the mixture, mix well again adding the ghee and place in microwave for another 3-4 minutes stirring in between until the mixture thickens and gets to a sticky consistency. Make sure you wear microwave safe gloves since the dish would be extremely hot.
Let it cool for few minutes and add the nuts of your choice. Serve cool or warm.

The time can be reduced to 4 minutes totally based on the power level of the microwave oven. Constant stirring will keep you away from burning the dish.
Also, make sure the mixture does not overflow from the container.
