Hope many of us have heard this and have tasted this in our early childhood days. For those who have not tasted, it is a sweet which is made up of cow's first 3 days milk, after it gives birth. In my early childhood days, our paalkaramma used to give this and either my mom or my grandma used to prepare kadambu for me and I just love it. But I am not sure whether our children will ever get a chance of tasting this kadambu. If they get, I would say, they are really lucky. Though I have seen the recipe (without using the kadmbu paal/lactating milk) from net long before, I got chance to try this out last sunday.
- Warm Milk - 2.5 cups
- Egg replacer - 2 tsp ( if egg is used, add 2 eggs)
- Condensed Milk - 1 can
- Jaggery - 2 tsp
- Pepper - 1 tsp
- Cardamom Powder - 1/2 tsp
- Pista - few (crushed)
- Water - 2 tsp
- Saffron strands - few
- Add the 2 tsp water to the egg replacer and beat until fluffy.
- Now add the condensed milk, warm milk and Jaggery and mix well until the jaggery melts.
- Add the pepper, cardamom, and pista mix
- Now keep in a pressure cooker and without whistle pressure cook it for 40 min in medium flame.
- Then remove from steam and cool it in fridge for atleast 1 hr.
- Serve it by garnishing with saffrons.
- Tasty Kadambu/Junnu is ready to eat....
