Choco Milk Balls - A quick fix

Photobucket

Do we ever exclaim or jump in joy if something gets spoilt!!!!!! NOOOOO is the answer isn't it.

But I do. I celebrate and enjoy when milk curdles :)

Its summer time and power cut schedules are haphazard that we really cant plan to boil milk and preserve them properly. Last week, it so happened that a pack of milk curdled while boiling and what a sweet psycho was I to smile wide with sparkling eyes! :)

Days back mom used to add sugar to the curdled milk and make a khova kind of sweet and give me and thats when I started loving it. Now the chocolate lover and the 4th sense cook in me hinted an instinct to add cocoa powder to it and roll them into balls to make them as interesting as possible :) Ummmmmmmm simply delicious :)

Ingredients:

Milk(Curdled) - 1/2 ltr
Sugar - 4 tblsp
Cocoa Powder - 2 tblsp

Method:

Once you find your milk curdling, just jump in joy to make this interesting dessert :)

Pass it through a sieve and collect the cuddled milk.

Take it in a pan and add sugar and cocoa powder. Mix well and cook on medium flame until it becomes thick and rolls into a balls.

Remove from flame and allow it to come to room temperature.

Pinch small portions of it and roll it into balls and refrigerate.

Enjoy eating choco milk ladoos :P

Tips:

If you desperately want to make these choco - milk balls, boil milk and when it starts to raise, simmer the stove and add a tsp of lemon juice. The milk will curdle immediately and you can make this dessert as per the instructions above :)

Do not throw the whey water once you filter the curdled milk. Collect it and use it for making chapathi dough. Chapathis would turn out to be really soft this way :)
