  1. Hi Mahrukh,

    Thanks so much for pointing this out. I have added the mavo to the recipe.

    Yes, I had not listed mavo but you can use 250 grams of fresh mavo instead of evaporated milk.
    I prefer dry evaporated milk powder so the malido does not spoil so eeasily. Mavo tends to spoil if left outside for more than 5 hours.

    Best wishes and do share a picture and note when you make it.

  2. There is no mavo in ingredients but while cooking you have mentioned, so is it evaporated milk you mean.

  3. Thank Ketty. It was confusing to have the “tbs” measures in this Malido recipe. I have removed them. Usually when I make Malido, I go by eyesight and taste adding ingredients approx.

    Another thing if anyone is making Malido for a prayer ceremony like Jashan, pls do not add any water or rosewater. Only milk.

  4. You have mentioned 16 tbs for 8 1/2 cups flour, 1 cup milk , pistachios and almonds each and 1/2 cup in your recipe for sultanas.
    So how can 16 tbs be for 1cup 1/2 cup and 81/2 cups.?
