Khoya recipe - Homemade mawa
US measuring cups are used (1 cup = 240 ml)
grams (about 1 cup)
(about 1 liter) 5
Full fat milk
making khoya or mawa at home:
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.
Keep stirring with scraping bottom of the pan and also sides of the pan. As you cook, milk reduces and becomes grainy.
After 40-50 minutes, it will be more grainy. After this stage, you need to stir and scrape sides continuously.
keep stirring and keep cooking, till it becomes solid or dense like halwa.
You will feel that it will take little effort for stirring. At this time, turn off the stove heat. This took me total 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Remove it to another bowl and let it cool completely. As it cools it will thicken and harden.
