2cupColostrum milk / ginnu haalu, 1st day or 2nd day milk preferred
1/2 tspCardamom Powder
fewKesar / Saffron threads, (optional)
Combine jaggery with milk and mix it till jaggery dissolves completely
Add colostrum milk to it and mix .
Sieve the mixture to remove any impurities
Add cardamom powder and saffron strands ( optional ) .Mix once and transfer it to a cooker pan
Fill the pressure cooker base with water and allow to heat as we do for idli . Place the pan with colostrum pudding inside pressure cooker and steam cook for 20-25 mins .
Later take out the pan from the cooker and allow to cool the pudding . You may find some jaggery water on the top .. it's absolutely ok . Most of the time it will be absorbed as the pudding cools . Cut to squares after it cools .
Delicious ginnu is ready to relish !!
If using 1st day or 2nd day colostrum milk .. you can use 2 cup colostrum milk : 1 cup regular milk proportion. For 3rd / 4th day milk use 1 : 1 proportion . For beyond 4th day milk .. don't mix normal milk . Just use colostrum milk as it won't be very thick and adding regular milk would make it more thinner and hence won't set .
For some extra flavor you can add a pinch of nutmeg / clove / pepper powder .
I have heard that we can freeze colostrum milk for 1-2 months and use when required . I have not tried it .
You can make this pudding from the ready powder available
