  • Take heavy bottom non stick pan. Heat the milk in a pan on medium heat.
  • once it comes to a boil, let it simmer and reduce on medium-low flame.
  • Keep stirring after every 3-4 minutes. If possible, use wider spatula. So it will cover the more area of bottom pan while stirring and it will make your job easier.
