instant khoya recipe

instant khoya recipe with step by step photos. one of the quickest and easiest method to make khoya or mawa is with milk powder. yes its very quick, instant and takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. after that you do have to allow the khoya to cool at room temperature before using it, which also does not take much time.

i make instant khoya at times when i want to add it in gulab jamuns, kala jamun or sweets like gujiya, til khoya ladoo, rava ladoo or for kofta or for a curry based dish like khoya matar makhana or kaju khoya curry.

the method comes handy when you don’t have khoya at home or you need just little khoya for any recipe. you can make the amount you need. so for small amounts of khoya or mawa this method works very well.

making khoya with the traditional method takes time and thus when you have less time, you can use this method.

instant mawa is made with just 3 ingredients – milk powder, water and ghee. do use good quality and full fat milk powder to get the best results. instead of water you can also use milk. this instant khoya recipe yields 205 grams of khoya.

    During Durga puja I made gulab jamun with khoya for my family. But when I was frying the jamuns they break into oil. I follow every step from your recipe, but I can’t make perfect gulab jamun. What can I do?

    1. debarupa, the mixture must have not binded well thats the jamuns broke in oil. firstly grate both khoya and paneer. do not crumble. then add maida etc and gather in a dough. test a small ball in oil. if it breaks, then some more maida needs to be added. so you can add half to one tablespoon more maida and mix again and then gather in a dough. also the oil should be on medium heat. on a low flame the balls can break.

  2. Hi, Great to see we can make khoya like this. Can we use this for traditional Indian sweets which require khoya. If so then how do we use it. Directly like from fridge or do we need to do something else. Still can’t believe we can make khoya like this.☺ Was having a can of patanjali milk powder, wondering what to do, and lo and behold this recipe comes along. 😁Keep up the great work. Happy Diwali to you and your loved ones.

    1. thanks shilpi. yes of course you can use it for traditional indian sweets. just grate the khoya and use it according to the recipe. let it come to room temperature before grating as it is hard if grated directly after removing from the fridge. today i made pedas using this khoya and they were too good. i will share the recipe tomorrow. one post i have already shared with homemade khoya in it is sesame seeds laddos. recipe is here – https://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/til-khoya-ladoo-recipe/

      wish you too a happy diwali.
