I had bought this pack of milk powder ages back with the thought of making palkova, but never got around to it. So, while looking for recipes I came across this fudge from Jeyashri’s blog. It looked easy to make and I was glad to use up the packets. Since I do not have a proper picture of single-thread consistency, I decided to click the same except that I completely forgot that I was dealing with sugar syrup and was taking my own sweet time to click the picture. After 5 minutes of taking the picture in different angles, I realized that the sugar syrup had moved on to the two-thread consistency. Even though I had to make it again from scratch, I still enjoyed the whole experience because I had good pictures of the sugar syrup consistencies and I do not have to click those again .
The dessert was on the sweeter side and if you have sweet tooth, do not miss this dessert. Wishing everyone a happy and safe Diwali. Off to the recipe adapted slightly from here.
