Mawa/Khoya is in great demand during festivals. This recipe of making Instant Mawa comes handy when we want to prepare sweets that require Mawa/Khoya. This tastes the same as store bought mawa (even more delicious than store bought as it is homemade) 🙂

 I never purchase mawa/khoya from outside as it can be made at home easily within 5 minutes. Only 3-ingredients required – milk powder, ghee/clarified butter and milk. Just mix them up and cook on a low flame. Within 5 minutes homemade Instant mawa is ready. Use it to make any dessert like Lauki Burfi, Gulab Jamun, etc.

The mawa that is made with milk powder is sweet (as the milk powder contains sugar). So when you are using this homemade mawa in any particular recipe make sure you add less sugar while making that recipe. You are going to add mawa in the recipe that will also make it sweet.

Tips to make perfect Mawa (Khoya)

  • Always cook it on a low flame.
  • It is better to use any heavy bottom pan so that milk should not stick to the bottom.
  • Stir continuously to avoid milk sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  • If you feel that it is sticking to the bottom of the pan then add 1 or 2 tsp ghee and cook.
  • While mixing milk powder and milk if you get lumps in the mixture then better to strain the mixture and then start cooking it. There should not be any lumps in the mixture.
  • You can use it instantly or store it in the refrigerator for about a week.
