khoya or mawa is solidified milk that is used for making many Indian sweets. it can be made well in advance and kept in the fridge. it also freezes well. 2 litre full milk make approximately 200-225 gm.
use ricotta cheese, instead of khoya or mawa. put it in a heavy non stick pan and heat it on low-medium heat, stirring it often till most of the water has evaporated and then use it as khoya.
