Doodh Paak is mostly prepared during the festive season in Gujarati Household. This delicious and sinful Gujarati dessert is best served with Puri, Bhajiya ( Pakora ).

Since I posted the recipe of Kesar, Pista , Nariyal Doodh Paak Ladoo, many of you asked us about the Doodh Paak recipe, A few asked me is it kheer? No, it's not! How? Kheer and Doodh Paak look similar, Ingredients are the same, but the method is a little different.

Difference Between Kheer And Doodh Paak 


Kheer is very creamy and thick.
In kheer recipe ratio of milk and rice is e.g. 1-litre milk and 1/4 cup rice
In the method of making kheer as soon as the milk starts boiling, we add rice and cook until everything until rice is almost mushy.
In kheer recipe, saffron can be added.

What Is Doodh Paak? 


Doodh Paak translates 'Cooked Milk'. In Doodh Paak recipe, it is very important that you boil milk first and milk should be concentrated and approximately 60% of the water content has to be evaporated and it should look like cream colour evaporated milk but should not become Rabdi or basundi.
Ratio of milk and rice should be 1 litre milk and 1 tablespoon rice.
In Doodh Paak rice is only added after milk is cooked properly.
And please do not add saffron.
Doodh Paak should only be garnished with almonds and pistachio nuts.
And Doodh Paak is creamy but not thick, Doodh Paak is there to gulp it down :)

Why You Should Make This Recipe?


Why I am so sure about this recipe, it's not my confidence but the person who taught me, she was the confident one, and  Doodh paak made by her was the most popular recipe in the entire block where I grew up and she would swear on this recipe. No, it wasn't my Mum!

In India, one of our next-door neighbour lady, fondly we've always called her' Masi ' (aunt) who would make Doodh Paak on every Raksha Bandhan and she would make sure that one big bowl of Doodh Paak reaches to our house, mostly in our house mum used to prepare Kheer or Shrikhand on Raksha Bandhan.

Not only me but her BIL was also a great fan of her Doodh Paak too. He would easily gulp it down 3-4 bowl at a time  At that time I was a big fan of her cooking, but only after I got married I noted down few recipes from her like Handvo, Methi Thepla,Sukhdi, and Doodh Paak!

Recently I had an opportunity to prepare Doodh Paak as we had a small religious ceremony,  for Prasad I prepared Potato and Chick Pea curry (without onion and garlic ), Coconut and Almond rice, Puri and Doodh Paak!

Can I make Vegan Doodh Paak?


Yes, you can. Use coconut, oats or rice milk.

Can I use sweetened condensed milk to make Doodh Paak?


Traditional Doodh Paak recipe is made without condensed milk, but can be used in making Rice Kheer.

Top Tips For The Best Doodh Paak Recipe


To make Doodh Paak always use whole milk or full cream milk, the doodh paak will be creamier and rich.

Always, use heavy base pan or kadai to make doodh paak, and continually keep stirring to get the best results.

Never leave milk-based recipes unattended, there will be a chance of milk getting burn or sticks to the bottom of the pan.

Once Doodh Paak is made, cover the pan with a muslin cloth. This will prevent the forming of any creamy layers.
