Khoya Recipe | Mawa Recipe with detailed photos. Khoya or Mawa is milk thickened by heating in an heavy bottom pan. It is a dairy product that is used in various types of Indian sweets as well as in some curry recipes.

Almost in every Indian festival, we prepare khoya based sweets. And nowadays it is very difficult to find pure khoya/mawa without any additives. Hence homemade khoya is always the best option for making sweets. The process of making homemade khoya takes time but its taste and texture is far better than the store brought.   

For this recipe, 1-liter full cream milk is used which makes about 1 ½ cup khoya. But the quantity of khoya can be more or less, it depends on the milk quality.

You can also use khoya to make Ukadiche Modak, Paneer Butter Masala
