Low Fat Milk Cake/ Sweet for Diwali

Written By FewMinute Wonders on Sunday, October 26, 2008 | 5:30 PM

Its time for us to make sweets to celebrate. Deepavali is a time when I am amazed at the energy I have to prepare sweets and savories. I usually ask my husband and daughter to decide on what they would like for me to prepare. My daughter picked milk sweet or cake and so I had to come up with something apart from kalakand that I had already posted. I must say the sweet turned out very well and was very simple to prepare. Usually milk sweets have a lot of butter and high fat milk, that is where mine varies. I used low fat ricotta cheese, very little butter and lactose free milk powder. Took me about 12-15 minutes to prepare. For those of you who are looking for an economical sweet to prepare this is one for sure.

Heavy bottom vessel/Wok
Measuring spoons and Cups
Prepared tray
Wax paper


Low fat ricotta cheese - 15 oz
Sugar - 1 cup
Butter - 2 tbsp
Ghee - 2 tsp
Coffee-mate(lactose free) - 1 cup
Cardamon - 2 pods
Rava/ Cream of Wheat - 3 tbsp
Cashew nut or almond powder - 1/2 cup (substitute 1/4 extra rava and 1/4 milk powder for nut free cake)


1. Place the wok on medium heat and add 2 tbsp of butter and allow it to melt.

2. Add ricotta cheese and rava and mix well and cook it for 6 minutes.

3. Add sugar and cook for 5 minutes.Then add nuts and milk powder and be careful to mix them so as to not allow the lumps to form.

4. Add cardamon powder and 2 tsp of ghee and mix until it thickens.

5. Layer the prepared tray with wax paper and pour the cake mix into it and level it.

6. Allow it to cool and put it in the fridge to allow the cake to set and then cut into squares.
