low fat Khoya

Khoya is what gets left behind when milk is boiled for a long period of time. It gets reduced, until all that's left behind is a semi-solid substance, thick but mild in flavour, excellent for making Indian sweets with. Low fat khoya on the other hand is what you get when you mix milk powder with cream in a microwavable bowl, and microwave it for a total time of 7-8 minutes. Stay by its side for it requires a stir every 2 minutes. This produces khoya that is fresh, great tasting and low in fat. Indulging in your favourite burfi, gulab jamun, gajar ka halwa, kalakand...etc., can now be a partial guilt-free trip for you. Mawa is preferably made at home as it is not easily available in the market. The recipe link shared below explains how you can make this at home.
