Recently, she shared the traditional process of making Halwa Muskat a.k.a Muscoth Halwa, a sweet dessert originating from Sri Lanka and very popular in Southern Tamil Nadu.

This sweet is made from a combination of wheat milk, coconut milk and sugar. The wheat is kneaded into dough and then soaked and ground until the wheat milk can be extracted. The mixture is then left overnight to allow it to separate and thicken.

Halwa Muskat is a local favourite in Malaysia, especially during festive seasons.

Tunku Azizah uploaded a seven-part video of her process while being assisted by a royal palace chef. She shows how she kneads the dough and then soaks and rinses it in a bowl of water to remove its gluten.

As a follow up to the tutorial, she also posted an image of the wheat milk in a covered pot with a label saying “absolutely no touching and do not push or pull”.

Consider this a warning to everyone. Do not touch or move this pot or else I will pull your ears and rap your fingers.
