Home Town Treats: Srivilliputhur Palkova

Palkova or Milk Peda is my another favorite South Indian Sweet item. I was a big fan of this yummilious sweet even before joining my engineering graduation at Srivilliputhur, Tamilnadu. And being there for four years made me love this sweet more than anything.

  1. Thanks so much for joining this linky party Vasantha. I’m afraid I’m technically challenged and don’t know how to make a proper linky. And every month I forget how I got the whole thing going. I will try and make your link appear on my post!

  2. What an amazing idea Vasantha. Featuring your regional cuisine in such a wonderful way. For a foodie like me, this was pretty useful info as on my travels I am forever looking for local cuisines and sometimes dont know what’s the speciality of the region.
    BTW many congratulations on the Women’s web nomination. It’s indeed huge and fingers crossed for you to win.

  3. That name ‘Milk Peda’ just grabbed my attention, Vasantha!!! 😛

    How I love these sweets! I can gobble a few at one go..I mean, I can eat at least a few one after the other….These are simply heavenly, and the one you have described here seems heavenly, too! I hope I get to savour these beauties some day!

    Thanks for joining us for flavoursometuesdays!
