  • Once it starts boiling, reduce the flame and Continue to boil till it reduces to Khoya/Solidified Milk/Milk Solids. 
  • It takes about 2 hours and a Watchful Eye for making this. 
  • Keep Stirring frequently to avoid burning and to scrap the solids on the sides of the pan. For this much quantity of milk i got 1 and 1/2 cup of Khoya.

  • The Mixture would come together as a mass. Take it off the flame. Let it cool for few minutes.
  • Coat your palms with little ghee and pinch the mixture and make small balls out of it and make a small dent in the middle. 
  • Garnish it with any nut flakes and Serve.
