I want to wish my dear readers a very happy Deepavali and blessed year ahead. Today I want to share a dessert recipe which is close to my heart. This dessert has a special place in my heart as it brings back many fond memories of my childhood. This dessert was our treat during summer vacation time in my maternal grandma’s place. This dessert is known as Amrita phala in Kannada, our regional language.
Original Amrita phala recipe requires continuous stirring of coconut milk and milk concoctions for about two to three hours. To suit today’s busy life my aunt made some changes to the original recipe so that we can prepare this dish easily without compromising on the taste. This is an easy to prepare, melt in your mouth kind of fudge prepared using coconut milk as the main ingredient. Coconut milk gives very mild yet aromatic flavor to this dish. I prepared this seven cup Amrita Phala on the auspicious occasion of Deepavali. Now let’s see how to prepare this recipe
Coconut milk – 1 cup
Clarified butter/ Ghee-1 cup
Gram flour/besan -1 cup
Sugar – 3 cup
-Take thick bottomed pan. To this add milk, coconut milk and sugar, keep this for boil.
-In another vessel, heat clarified butter/ghee. When it is hot, switch off the gas. To this add gram flour and keep aside.
-When milk mixture reaches 1 thread consistency, add gram flour mixture and mix continuously up until sides of the pan becomes little brownish.
-Now pour this mixture to a greased plate, cool it for about 5 min.
-Using a sharp knife now make mark on the dessert and once it is completely cooled, remove the pieces and store it in an air tight container.
Your amrita phala is ready to serve !
