About JUNNU Recipe

Junnu is a pudding like delicacy made with COLOSTRUM ors cow’s milk after giving birth to a calf. Diluted with regular milk and sugar and steamed, this is a very simple and favorite dish of many. As this milk is not available easily, substitute JUNNU dry powder packs are available in departmental stores in Northern Andhra.


Ingredients to make JUNNU

  • Thick Milk - 1/2 litre
  • Junnu Powder - 200 gms sachet
  • jaggery Powder - 1 small cup
  • sugar - 2 sp
  • pepper powder - 1 pinch
  • Elachi Powder - 1 pinch

How to make JUNNU

  1. Warm the milk in a flat bottomed steel vessel having depth (like milk boiling vessel). Dissolve all the remaining ingredients and whisk uniformly.
  2. Steam on medium flame for 20 - 25 minutes.
  3. After cooling, refrigerate for ½ hour. This will set it into a pudding like form.

My Tip:

The temperature of milk should be optimum. Over heating will cause curdling and warming helps in dissolving the contents. Sugar and Jaggery can be altered to taste by tasting the mixture before steaming. If too much water has oozed out after steaming, a narrower vessel can be used.
