When fresh cream is blended with sugar, sweet cream is created. Buffalo's milk is preferred as the cream of choice as it is richer in fat than cow's milk. Glossy and snow white, in texture and colour, sweetened cream is used generously when making desserts and sweetmeats. This can be made at home with the malai skimmed off the surface of milk. Commercially the homogenised version is made available.
