To combat this stressful process of making mava from fresh milk (which requires constant stirring on low heat), I have got two recipes.

One is this one which is using making mawa/ mava using milk powder and second is using ricotta cheese. Over here I will explain how to make mava using milk powder.

If you are one short of time, or live where getting fresh khoya from a sweet shop / halwai is difficult, probably this is best substitute for fresh mava.

This process is not only simple, it is quick too and there is no noticeable difference in taste and I have used it many times on my own sweets like Gulab Jamun, Kala Jamun, etc

Notes

  • Always cook it on medium heat only.
  • This recipe yields little sweetened khoya similar to the one made with full cream milk, so adjust amount of sugar in your dessert (where you intend to use this mava) accordingly.
  • This Mawa / Khoya / Mava holds the shape when its warm, once cold it crumbles. So if you wish to give it any shape, do it while its warm.
