kharvas recipekharvas recipe | junnu recipe | how to make instant kharvas with step by step photo and video recipe. indian sweets are world famous and have many variants and flavours of sweets prepared with just full cream milk. particularly the bengali cuisine is full of chenna based sweets dipped in sugar syrup or sweetened milk. kharvas recipe or junnu is one such sweet recipe made from cow’s colostrum, but in this, i have used milk & milk powder.

as i previously mentioned, kharvas is a taditional sweet recipe and is generally prepared with cow colostrum (cheek). but we all know, getting the first form of milk produced by the cow is almost impractical. hence this recipe which uses the combination of full cream cows milk with milk powder, curd and condensed milk. moreover, i even call this recipe as an instant version of junnu recipe. because of the usage of condensed milk as compared to traditional one where the milk is evaporated in constant low medium heat. further, it then steamed in a hot water which gives it a smooth and soft texture. as a matter of fact, this step of steaming makes it unique and distinctive from the paneer or chenna based sweets.

furthermore, i would like to pinpoint some tips and suggestions while preparing the kharvas recipe / ginnu recipe. firstly, as i mentioned previously, this is an instant version and i have not used the cow’s colostrum milk. but if you do have an access to it, ignore my alternatives and use it directly for the best results. secondly, the traditional version uses jaggery or ghud mixed with colostrum milk. however, i have used the condensed milk which already contains the required sweetness in it. lastly, i have added cardamom powder with a basic garnishing. but this can be easily extended with choice of dry fruits like powdered cashews, almonds and walnuts.

finally, i would like to highlight my other indian sweet recipes collection with this post of kharvas recipe. it includes recipes like rasgulla, rasmalai, chum chum, sandesh, raj bhog, badusha, paneer kheer, sevai kheer, rice kheer, mishti doi and gulab jamun recipe. further, do visit my other similar recipes collection like,
