Doodhpak is an Indian Sweet , a rice pudding made from Milk, Rice, Sugar,Saffron and nuts. Dudhpak is commonly accompanied by Poori. The Milk is slow-boiled to thickened and sweetened and the dish is garnished with Chopped Almonds and Pistachios.
Doodhpak is very popular in Gujarat , a beautiful state of India. When I talk about Gujarat and Gujarati Food, my inner soul starts dancing . It’s natural , where you are born and bought up , that place will have special place in your heart.
Sweets and festivals go hand in hand . This time of year is season of Festivals. Many gets confused with Dudhpak and Kheer . Both delicacy looks so similar , also made with same ingredients Milk, Rice and Sugar. But the taste , texture Method to prepare everything is different.
- Always use Full fat Milk for that lovely creamy texture.
- Use sugar as per taste. For me and my family , this measurement was perfect.
- Just to blend cardamom and nutmag nicely , I have powdered them with sugar.
- 1.5 lt Full Fat Milk
- 2 tbsp Basmati Rice
- 1 cup Sugar
- Few Saffron Strands
- 1.5 tsp Ghee / Clarified Butter
- 5 to 6 Cardamom
- 1/2 small Nutmag ,
- Roughly chopped Almomds And Pistachios
Wash and soak Basmati Rice with adequate water for 10 to 15 mins. Add a spoon of Ghee in it. Mix nicely and keep aside .. Soak saffron strands in 3 tsp warm milk.
In a heavy bottomed broad vessel, take Milk and allow it to boil. Keep stirring and scrapping the sides . Boil for 12 to 15 mins on medium flame.
Later add soaked rice and again cook for 10 mins. Stir frequently.
In Mixer jar take sugar , cardamom and nutmag . Grind all together till a smooth powder ..
Now add soaked saffron , grinded sugar mixture. Mix well and cook for more 10 mins on medium flame.
Later switch off gas. Allow it to cool and then keep in refrigerator for at least 2 to 3 hrs , before serving. Garnish with almond and pistachio slivers.
Dudhpak can be served hot or chilled. Serve hot poori and believe me it’s heavenly..
