Mawa or khoya is nothing but reduced milk into solids. It is used in many Indian sweets and can be made at home. It is a bit time-consuming but worth the effort as you know what you are consuming.
Ingredients – 1-liter full-fat milk
Yield – 250 gms khoya
- Take milk in a thick-bottomed broad pan and keep it for boiling on a medium flame.
- Once the milk comes to a boil, turn the heat to low and keep boiling the milk, stirring and scraping the sides intermittently.
- Once the milk has reduced considerably, keep an eye on it and keep stirring more frequently as it may stick to the bottom and burn.
- It will take 45 mins to 1 hour to start to solidify and come together.
- Your khoya is ready.
