Kharwas - Milk Pudding

A silky smooth textured milk pudding made from the milk given by buffalo or cow in a day after she has calved. This milk we call as "Cheek" in Marathi. In English its called Colostrum. Across India you will find people preparing this pudding more or less in similar manner but the names differs from region to region.

By using this Cheek (Colostrum Milk) and regular milk we make a custard like sweet which is know as "Kharwas" in Marathi. Its very easy to prepare with just a minimal amount of ingredients.

  • 1/2 Liter Cheek ( Colostrum Milk)
  • 1/2 Liter Regular Milk
  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Cardamon Powder
  • In a mixing bowl add cheek (colostrum milk), regular milk and sugar. Stir this mixture till sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Now pour this mixture into a container which fits in a steamer or pressure cooker. Sprinkle cardamon powder over the mixture. In case you are using pressure cooker, remove the whistle. 
  • Steam this kharvas mixture for 30 minutes on medium flame. 
  • Once the kharvas is steamed, keep kharvas aside to cool. Cool it completely till it comes to room temperature. Then keep it in the fridge for about 4 hours so that it will be chilled enough.
  • Now cut the kharvas into diamond or square shapes.
  • Serve Chilled.   
Note: You may also add saffron strands in the mixture while mixing the milk and cheek (colostrum milk), which will give it a nice pale yellow colour and would enhance the taste.
