1 Min Instant Khoya Recipe - Instant Khoya using Milk Powder

Mawa or khoya forms a base for many sweets. But making them from scratch can be a tiresome process, more over it takes ages to make it from scratch. I have already shared a microwave hack for a 7 min mawa recipe. But this one is even more simpler and hardly takes any time at all. Plus the result is so good.

This needs only milk powder, milk and some ghee. The khoya made from this is great to make sweets. You can store the ball shaped mawa in fridge in a air tight container and grate it whenever you need. They stay soft and moist all the time. It can be kept in fridge for 5 to 6 days. So give this a go and let me know how it turns out for you..I used these mawa to make a delicious mathura ka peda, will be sharing it tomorrow..
