Goan Milk Cream/ Milk Fudge (Gluten free)

Today I am sharing a traditional Christmas dessert recipe for all my lovely readers. Milk Cream is the name of this wonderfully fudgy sweet/dessert dish especially prepared during Christmas in a Goan Christian home.

I tasted this melt in your mouth kind of milk cream for the first time because of my wonderful friend. I got the recipe for this milk cream also from the same friend. This dessert requires very few basic ingredients along with some patience and loads of love. Prepare this delicious dessert and share the spirit of Christmas with family and friends. Wish you all a white Christmas with these gluten free dainty delicacies.


Milk – 1 liter

  1. In a thick bottomed pan take milk and boil in a low flame till it reduces to half the quantity. Keep stirring the milk so that the milk does not burn.
  2. To this add sugar and continue stirring till the sugar dissolves completely and the milk thickens further.
  3. Now to this thick mixture add cashewnut powder and keep stirring the mixture continuously so that the milk mixture does not sticks to the bottom of the pan. Once this mixture bubbles at the edges of the pan, it is time to test the readiness of the mixture.
  4. To test for the readiness of the mixture, take a drop of the mixture and put it on the plate, if the mixture rolls in between your fingers, it’s time to switch off the gas.
