instant khoya recipe

I make instant khoya at times when I want to add it in Gulab jamun, Kala jamun or sweets like Gujiya, Til khoya ladoo, Rava ladoo or for kofta or for a curry based dish.

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.
