Anjulina's picture
This is a delicious and very quick dessert that everyone will love. I love this recipe for so many reasons and I hope you will too. It's great for entertaining, for making as a gift for someone or to take to a potluck, and for getting your kids involved in the kitchen.
Ingredients
  Ricotta cheese 48 Ounce
  Dry evaporated milk 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs) (Carnation)
  Sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Chopped pistachios 1 Cup (16 tbs) (For Topping)
  Ricotta cheese 16 Ounce
  Dry evaporated milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Carnation)
  Sugar 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
Directions

Mix the Ricotta Cheese, Sugar, & Dry Carnation Milk until it is a smooth consistency. If your child is involved mix in a separate bowl. If you are on your own you can mix the ingredients right in the pan because it doesn't need to be greased. (So minimal dishes and clean up).

Bake for 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees. The mithai should pull away from the sides and the top should be caramelized and it should no longer be of a liquid consistency.

Cool and then top with chopped pistachios (optional)

Refrigerate for 2 hours

Cut and plate!

Story
My parents came over here in the late 60's and they missed so many of the Indian specialties and ingredients. In order to recreate the tastes from back home they had to come up with close substitutions. This dish is one of those fusion desserts that some of the moms from over 35 years ago was created for entertaining. Even though Indian sweets are so widely available today this is still one of my favorites. In India, many of the sweets are made with milk that is boiled for hours to get that thick rich flavor. This dish may not be as good as the authentic one, but it comes close enough and it saves you so much time in the kitchen.
