Tuesday Tip | How to make Khoya Or Mawa at home with milk powder ? | Instant Mawa Recipe

Mawa or Khoya is a very important ingredient in many of the Indian dishes. It is the main ingredient in many sweet dishes. The process of making mawa is lengthy. It is made after heating and boiling full fat milk for hours till milk is evaporated and milk solids are left. The process requires constant stirring as the milk should not stick the bottom of the vessel in which it is boiled.  Hence, many people end up buying from the shops. But there are places where mawa or khoya is not easily available in the shops.
