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 little time consuming but worth the effort as you know exactly 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 the same and keep stirring more frequently as it may stick to the bottom and burn.
- It will take 45 mins to 1 hr to start to solidify and come together.
- Your khoya is ready.
