Low-fat Microwave therattipaal (Milk Halwa)


1 tin fat-free sweetened condensed milk
3 tbsp fat-free yogurt (unflavored)
1 tbsp ghee/melted butter
Cardamom (Elaichi) powder


Mix all the first three ingredients in a fairly deep microwavable bowl.

Cook in the microwave for 2 mins on high. Then remove
and mix well and microwave again for another 2 minutes on

Continue to do this until the mixture thickens to a
halwa consistency. Add cardamom at the very end.
It takes about 10-15 mins to make it but tastes as good as the stove-top method.

Note: The mixture should be light brown when done.
It tends to become darker after removing from the microwave.
Stir everytime you take it out of the micowave.
