Doodh Pak (दूध पाक )

This weekend my enthusiasm as if had no limits :-))After making Chilli Paneer in the morning , the next dish on my cooking list was Pithla- Bhakri-Thecha.The rustic taste as if was a blessing to our taste-buds   . And so the 'Weekend Food Festival' continues in the evening as well. For Dinner , I tried my hands on this dessert recipe which I had read on 'DIWALI-THE FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS' page on Facebook. the recipe seemed quite easy . Though the dish was an instant hit in the family , I strongly felt that whosoever has posted this recipe on the page, has not done justice with the title.Why??? Go through the recipe first and then decide:


  • Basmati Rice- 300 gms (cleanly washed)
  • Sago(साबूदाना)- 1/2 cup/50 gms (cleanly washed)
  • Milk- 1 ltr
  • Sugar- 500 gms
  • A fistful of Cashews, Raisins & Almonds
  • Cardamom(इलायची ) Powder - 1 tablespoon
  • 1 ltr water -to be boiled
Serves: 6-7 people

Time to prepare : 40 mins

  • Pour water in a deep(thick bottom) vessel and boil it.When the water starts boiling, add the washed rice.
  • Let the rice boil for 7-8 mins till half cooked.
  • Add sago in the boiling rice.

  • Make sure that the rice is properly cooked and sago turns transparent.
  • Add the chopped dry fruits and continue boiling.
  • Boil the milk separately and add to the rice & sago mixture.
  • Continue boiling until it thickens more (approx for 10 mins)\
  • Add cardamom powder and the dessert is ready to serve.
  • Garnish it with cherry or almonds.

I know what you are thinking...actually i also had the same point that other than sago, the recipe is just like making CHAWAL KI KHEER. Not to worry , the dish rocks even if the name is a turn off. but let that not stop you from trying this quick-to-make/fast-to-eat dessert which can be made fr all occasions. Enjoy Cooking !!
