Homemade Khoya/Mawa

Khoya/Mawa is used as the base for a wide variety of indian sweets. Khoya is made by simmering full-fat milk in a heavy bottomed vessel for a long time, till it becomes thick. They are used in gravies too.

This time I used khoya for making mawa cup cake and it was yummy and delicious. You can click on the link to know the recipe for Mawa Cupcake

6 cups Full Cream Milk
  • Pour the full cream milk in a heavy bottomed pan. Keep stirring in between and scrap out the sides.
  • Stir continuously and keep scraping the sides. Keep a close eye on the milk as it tends to burn in the bottom. Let the milk boil for 30 minutes. Now the milk will reduce to half the quantity.
  • After 15 minutes, the mixture will start to thicken. Keep stirring. At this stage, the mixture tends to burn easily, so keep stirring and scrap the sides constantly.
  • After 5 minutes, you can see that the mixture forms into a lump and comes off easily from the sides. At this stage, switch off the flame and let it cool down completely.
  • Once the khoya is cooled, it will become thicker. Khoya is used for making many indian sweets or you can even add it in curries.
