Butterscotch Palkova, today we will see how to prepare milk halwa / thirattipal with butterscotch at home with step by step photos. Butterscotch Palkova is made using packet milk, butterscotch chips and sugar. For a bit of extra flavor, try adding a pinch of cardamom powder.
This is a very simple recipe but need time to prepare. I have never tried quick version of preparing palkova using microwave. To prepare butterscotch palkova, heat 1 liter packet milk. You can also try with 500 ml milk but the final quantity will be very less. Using 1 liter milk, you can serve palkova to 2 people. Once milk starts boiling, keep the flame to low and let it cook till the quantity of milk reduces and reaches thick consistency. At this stage you need to add butterscotch chips and sugar.
I have added very less sugar since butterscotch also has sweetness. Crush the chips lightly and then use it. Milk halwa / Butterscotch palkova is very light. Instead of sugar, you can also try with jaggery. If using jaggery, then add it after removing palkova from the flame to avoid curdling. I have used aavin blue packet milk (toned milk). The same cooking procedure is followed to prepare mawa / plain khoya, where we dont add any sugar or jaggery.

Butterscotch Palkova Recipe
- 1 liter milk
- 40 gms / ¼ cup butterscotch chips - crushed lightly
- 2 tsp sugar or more according to your need
How to prepare Thirattipal
- Heat milk in a pan or kadai. I have used stainless steel vessel to heat milk. Switch the flame to low and let it boil. Depending on the vessel you use, the cooking time may vary. Once milk starts boiling, stir it with a spoon or flat ladle and scrape the sides of the vessel.
- Stir it every 5 or 10 minutes and scrape the sides. Milk level will start reducing and the color will also change. Keep on stirring for every ten minutes. When the mixture looks thick with some liquid left, add butterscotch and sugar. Keep stirring now. You need to keep stirring to avoid sticking at the bottom. When all the liquid is absorbed and you get thick halwa like mixture, switch off the flame. Add a pinch of cardamom powder and garnish with chopped pistachio. Serve hot or at room temperature.
