What is pal meth?
As mentioned earlier, Bal Mithai is a sweet dish that resembles brown chocolate candy. Made with roasted khoya sprinkled with white sugar-coated poppy seed balls.
It is very popular in Kumaon area. Mithai is said to have been the invention of Lala Joja Shah of Lal Bazaar, Almora, and experts believe it was the premiere offering to the sun god.
It is a specialty of the Almora region and is prepared by cooking khoya – thickened milk by heating – with cane sugar until it turns dark brown, like chocolate. After that, it is allowed to cool, after which it is cut, mostly in cubes, and then covered with small poppy seeds.

Keep in mind that khoya can take some time to change color, so it is wise to boil approximately 1 liter of water at a time and prepare a syrup by adding 300 grams of sugar.
