90’s Kids Sweet–Halkova Recipe / Palkova / Maida burfi Recipe

halkova recipe

To celebrate this Diwali 2020, today I have shared an easy, yummy, nostalgic sweet recipe that kindles our school days memories. Yes, its a 80’s – 90’s kids favorite sweet fondly known as Palkova / halkova. We used to call this as Maida burfi. When we were young, we used to buy this 25p/ 50 paise sweet from the petty shop (Petti kadai) near our school and house. Nowadays its very rare to find petti kadai and 2k kids are not even aware of this sweet. So I thought of making this sweet in my home and enjoy.  Even though this is titled as palkova, this is no way related to a milk sweet. Milk or milk powder is not used in this recipe. As it looks white in color, it is called as palkova I guess.

During this lock down, I came across this halkova recipe in my Instagram feed, tried and posted by @starving.tummy Vinesh. When I saw the picture, I was tempted to know the recipe and DM’ ed him. He was so sweet and he shared this perfect recipe immediately. With just 3 major ingredients, this petty shop palkova can be prepared under 15 minutes. Its completely a beginners sweet. There is no sugar syrup consistency or mixing process unlike our usual Maida burfi. It is so simple to make. Original recipe called for using Dalda / Vanaspathi but I used ghee in my first attempt and dalda in my second try. We loved the ghee ones more. 

Anyone can make this halkova easily without any fuss. Friends, do try this easy, yummy, halkova / palkova / Maida burfi recipe for this Diwali 2020 and enjoy !

  • All purpose flour / maida - 1 cup
  • Powdered sugar - 1 cup
  • Melted ghee or dalda - 1/2 cup 
  • Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
HOW TO MAKE HALKOVA RECIPE
  1. Heat ghee in a kadai for few seconds. Add maida and roast in low flame for 8 to 10 minutes without changing the color.
  2. Maida gets roasted and resembles a semi thick paste. Switch off the flame. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. Let it come to room temperature. Add cardamom powder.
  4. Add powdered sugar gradually and mix well to make a thick dough.
  5. Take a ghee greased bowl lined with butter paper and press the dough to make square shape.

  7. Then loosen the sides and invert the bowl in a plate.
  8. Cut into small squares and store in an air tight box. It tastes the best from the next day.
  9. Store in an air tight box and enjoy up to one week.
METHOD - STEP BY STEP PICTURES
  • Powder 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp sugar and measure 1 cup from it. Set aside. 
  • 90's kids sweet palkova
  • Take melted ghee in a kadai and heat it for few seconds. Add Maida. Roast it well for 8 to 10 minutes in low to medium flame without changing the color of maida. Maida turns like a semi thick paste after roasting. Switch off the flame and remove the kadai. Transfer the roasted maida to a mixing bowl and cool down. I kept in the kadai itself. 
  • 90's kids sweet palkova
  • Let the maida paste cool down to room temperature. It should be warm enough to handle with your hands. It should not be hot. Add cardamom powder and half of powdered sugar. Mix well and add the remaining powdered sugar gradually.

  • Mix well to make a smooth, thick dough. Take a bowl. Line with butter paper. Grease with ghee and transfer the dough to it. Press to make shape. Let it set for an hour on counter top or refrigerate it. It takes 30 minutes to set in refrigerator. Remove the bowl and keep it outside. If it's too hard to cut, wait for sometime to bring down to room temperature otherwise burfi may crumble while you cut it. 90's kids sweet palkova

  • Loosen the sides with a knife gently. Invert the bowl to a plate and pat it. It will fall easily. Now cut into small squares and arrange in an air tight box. It tastes the best from the next day. You can store and use up to one week. Enjoy !
  • 90's kids sweet palkova

Note

  • To make white colored burfi, maida should be roasted patiently in low flame without changing its color. 
  • Do not forget to line the bowl with butter paper for easy removal. 
  • If you use dalda, texture and taste of burfi varies slightly. Also burfi sets quickly than the ones made with ghee.
  • Make sure, you don’t change the color of maida while roasting. Burfi won’t come white in color.
  • For variations, you can add a tbsp of milk powder along with powdered sugar.
  • If you cut the burfi before its set completely, it may crumble into small pieces.

 Try this easy, yummy palkova / maida burfi recipe and enjoy !

Bread Butter Jam Toast / Sandwich Recipe

Bread butter jam

Bread Butter Jam Recipe is the simplest and the basic sandwich recipe even a kid can make it easily. Usually kids make this for fireless cooking in school competitions.  I still remember this was my breakfast during our honey moon in Srilanka in a Five star hotel😀.

 Here in Bangalore, I have tasted bun butter jam in small sandwich shops and I just love it. Today I made the same using fresh bread slices. I think most of the moms pack this bread butter jam for their kids school lunch box or snacks box as it can be prepared easily under few minutes. In my case, I have never packed this for Raksha as she is not a big fan of jam based recipes. Somehow she hates the sweet taste in store bought jams. But myself and Sendhil likes to have it once in a while for our breakfast during weekends.

So last Sunday, I made this for ourselves and plain bread toast with butter for Raksha which is her favorite. As we all know, the plain bread butter jam is not a healthy choice for kids. Consuming it once in a while is not an issue but I won’t recommend to eat it regularly. So, to make it more healthy and interesting, we can add some toppings like chopped nuts, sliced fruits, sliced avocado, cheese etc.

You can play with your imaginations and do it based on your kids likings. You can serve it raw or toast it as I did. Tastes good in either ways. But use fresh or 1 day old bread slices for best taste. Now lets see how to make the simple and basic bread butter jam recipe with step by step pictures.
