How to make Kuvar Pak Recipe
To prepare Kuvar Pak Recipe take 500 ml of full fat milk in a thick bottomed pan & start to heat the milk on a low to medium flame, till the milk starts to froth or form a layer of cream/malai on top.
Once a layer of cream is started to form, add aloe-vera extract in milk and stir with spatula.
Keep on simmering the milk, stir it until milk gets reduced to 1/3rd or 1/4th of its original quantity. Milk reduced to white thick cream consistency.
Meanwhile, dissolve sugar in a little water and heat in a saucepan till you get sugar syrup of one string-consistency. Also grease a plate with ghee or butter and keep ready to pour the aloe vera sweet when done.
When the milk is reduced to almost 1/4th its initial quantity, add fresh cream and stir it, after some time, the milk starts to get brownish colour. That's the right time to add sugar syrup. Mix well until combined.
Switch off flame and spread this aloe vera mixture evenly on the greased plate.
After five minutes or when still the kuvar pak is hot, pour melted butter or ghee on top, such that it forms a top most layer.
When it cools down completely, refrigerate the plate with the aloe vera sweet for an hour, such that the butter/ghee on the top solidifies.
Run a knife around the edges and cut the sweet to desired shapes, before demoulding them. you can garnish with the sliced pistachios and serve during evening or after lunch.
