How many of us buy the fresh/frozen khoya/mawa from the stores? I personally never bought but know many who do. I found this simple recipe to make khoya at home in less than 10 min. The process is very simple if you have a microwave, else it might be a little more time consuming but still do-able. If you are anything like me, you will want to prepare this and store in the freezer so you will have it handy when you crave for a dessert!! Give it a shot and you will be glad just like me :) 
Watch out for a dessert I made with this khoya !!

Recipe Source - Multiple sites on the internet
Ingredients -

Milk Powder 1 1/2 cups [1 cup=240 ml ] (I used non fat milk powder)
Evaporated Milk 12 fl oz (350 ml)

Method Of Preparation -

In a microwave safe bowl, mix milk powder and evaporated milk without any lumps.

Boil the mixture in the microwave for 3-4 min and then remove from the m'wave.

Mix well and microwave in 30 sec intervals until the mixture solidifies into khoya.

It took me approximately 8 min. But the cooking time might vary depending on the power of the microwave.

  11. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe! I've never cooked with khoya, but this makes me give a serious thought! Did you use carnation type evaporated milk?

  12. Harini Says:
  13. Thanks everybody,
    @Suma Gandlur and Priya - I used Walmart brand non fat instant dry milk. So the nestle carnation should also be fine.

  26. That's good one Harini

  27. Harini Says:
  28. Thanks everyone.
    @ Gayatri Kumar - The fastest way is with evaporated milk. But if you don't mind a sweet khoya, you could try with condensed milk or take the longer route by using the regular milk. Frankly, I cannot tell you how much time it takes if regular milk is used.
