Seimbaal

SEIMBAAL
The colostrum is also known as seimbal (Tamil), Posu(Konkani), Ginnu(Kannada), Junnu(Telugu), Kharvas(Marathi) is a sweet made from lactating cow’s milk. Usually it is prepared by the first 3 days milk from the cows who has littered. This is a sweet made in different ways. I prepare this like pal kova. When the colostrum is boiled that forms like crumbled paneer. And jaggery adds colour and flavour to the colostrum.

Ingredients:
colostrum - 4 cups
jaggery - 1.5 cups
salt - a pinch
cardamom powder - 1 tsp
water - 1/4 cup

Method:
- make a syrup with jaggery and water and bring it to boil
- then strain it and remove the dirt- the cool- now boil the colostrum.
- after 5 - 7 mins of constant stirring it forms small crumbles like paneer.
- now pour in the jaggery syrup and keep stirring once in between
- now when the sweet is firm add the cardamom powder and pour in a greased plate and cut them into cubes when they are cold.
- I have left them as crumbles as I prepared in the night and left them in the kadai.
- I consumed the seimbal during the early mornings.
