It has junnu milk, normal buffalo milk, jaggery, pepper and cardamon in it. It is prepared, cooked and set.

  1. We used to have cheeka when we used to get the milk from a regular desi milkman. But in this age of tetrapack milk, you ll have to put fight to find the thing. I haven't ever tried to find it but I don't think you ll find it off the shelf. If you do find it tell me also
