So let’s find out how this instant mawa can be prepared at home.

  3. Milk powder - 1 cup

  3. When ghee mixes in milk, add milk powder to it.
  4. When the water dries up, cook it while stirring, then turn off the gas.

How to store khoya?

  1. Heat it first, cool it slightly and then make a dough to store khoya. Remember that it should not be too hot as it may burn your hands while making the dough.
  2. After this, take a cling foil and wrap the dough in it. After covering all the dough, keep it in a vessel. Now, store it in the fridge for 4 to 5 months.
  3. Before using mawa, take it out of the fridge and leave it for 15 minutes at room temperature.

Keep the following things in mind:

  1. If you are making mawa, always use full cream milk. This will help the mawa to be prepared in a thicker quantity.
  2. Always use non-stick kadhai for making mawa, as this will prevent the milk from sticking to the pan. Moreover, there will be no need to stir it again and again.
  3. If you want the colour of mawa to be white, cook the milk on a high flame. But if you want the colour of mawa to be brown, it can be cooked on medium flame.
