Seembaal/Junnu

Seembaal/junnu is a tamil/telugu word for a sweet, which is prepared from first day milk of cattle usually cow or buffalo.This is my favourite sweet which i think I am missing here in US.But it was a few days back and when I was blogging saw this delicious recipe for seembal.I loved the idea of using condensed milk and I was so happy to learn we can make it even without lactating milk.Finally I tried this yesterday in home and the taste and texture looks exactly the same as seembal that it almost satisfies our craving. Thought to share with you girls(Guess some of u knew this already). Thanks ramya for the woderful recipe.


INGREDIENTS:

Egg – 2
Whole milk – 11/2 cup
Sweetened condensed milk – 1cup
Black pepper – 1 tsp
Cardamom Powder – 1tsp

METHOD:

Beat the eggs thoroughly. Take a bowl and add egg mixture,condensed milk,whole milk and mix well.Now transfer this mixture into a bowl which fits in your pressure cooker.Sprinkle pepper powder and cardamom powder. Place this bowl in the pressure cooker with little water and cook on low flame for 30-40 minutes without whistle.A knife inserted should come out clean. Cool for few hours in the refrigerator and serve.

For all of us that love real seembaal milk..... it’s now possible to buy it in USA.Milk is called colostrum and sold in most states, where raw milk is sold.It’s a little pricey but it’s worth every penny.They (the one in Fresno, CA ) usually Ups it the same day and it’s at our door by next day(heard from friend).

WOW !! What a picture!! Looks like it was coming off my monitor :) I saw junnu in another blog long back and i was so surprised to see that its made from the lactating milk:) I am glad to see that I could make it in US a similar version of junnu using condensed milk:) Thanks for the recipe :)

I will try it out and thanks for sharing the recipe and information about colostrum .

Angel said...

Hi Dhivya,

I have tried your version of junnu. It came out really well. After so many days i had junnu.

I did a small modification by reducing condensed milk and adding jaggery. I got the junnu the way i wanted. :)

Thanks for the post.
