Ingredients to make JUNNU

  • 2 cup Colostrum milk 1st day or 2nd day milk preferred
  • 1 cup Regular milk
  • 1/2 -3/4 cup jaggery
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom Powder
  • few kesar (optional)
  • Black pepper (crushed)

How to make JUNNU

  1. Combine jaggery with milk and mix it till jaggery dissolves completely
  2. Add colostrum milk to it and mix .
  3. Sieve the mixture to remove any impurities
  4. Add cardamom powder and saffron strands ( optional ) .Mix once and transfer it to a cooker pan
  5. 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 .
  6. Later take out the pan from the cooker and allow to cool the pudding . You may find some jaggery water on the top and crushed black pepper .. it's absolutely ok . Most of the time it will be absorbed as the pudding cools .
  7. Delicious junnu is ready to relish !!

My Tip:

f 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 .
