Milk sweets are a must during Diwali.

Here's an easy-to-make Milk Cake recipe:

Milk cake or Milk Barfi

  • 150 gm sugar
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 2 tbsp liquid glucose (available in grocery stores)
  • 1/2 tsp alum


  • In a large, thick-bottomed, non-stick kadhai bring the milk to boil on high heat.
  • Add powered alum and sugar.
  • Cook by stirring continuously for about 90 minutes, or till milk becomes grainy and starts to thicken.
  • Add ghee and liquid glucose. Mix well.
  • Cook till the mixture begins to leave the sides of the kadhai.
  • Grease a tray or thali with ghee and pour the mixture into it. Cover and allow to cool for four to five hours.
