Khoya is a widely used ingredient in a lot of desserts and one need not reiterate how delicious it tastes. It is made from dried milk or by thickening milk. But the khoya that you buy from the market is sold loose, without any packaging. So if you are wary of buying it from the market amid the pandemic, it does not mean you have to forgo this wonderful ingredient. Instead, you can make it at home.
Former MasterChef runner-up Neha Deepak Shah recently shared two simple ways you can make khoya at home:
* In a heavy bottom pan, cook full cream milk on low flame, and keep stirring continuously. “It took me nearly 75 mins to cook 1.5 litres of milk but the flavour was amazing,” Shah wrote on Instagram.
* Scrape the sides of the pan continuously.
* Once the khoya starts forming, cool it in a bowl and knead a bit. You should ideally get 275-300 gm of khoya.

HOMEMADE KHOYA – With the onset of festivities & the current pandemic situation, it is best to avoid buying ingredients which are usually loosely sold. Khoya is usually available easily in all the dairies all over India. 🌟There are 2 ways to make it🌟 First – You can use full cream milk and cook it in a healthy bottom pan on low flame. You need to keep on stirring it continuously. It is a lot of effort for sure. It took me nearly 75 mins to cook 1.5 litres of milk but the flavour was amazing. Once the khoya starts coming together, you cool in a bowl and knead it a bit. You will need to keep scraping the sides of the kadhai continuously. Here you will get nearly 275 to 300 grams Khoya. Second – This is a short cut method and is as amazing and gives fantastic results. You heat 1/4 cup milk in a pan & add 1 & half cup Milk Powder. Mix it until all the milk powder dissolves and then add 1 tbsp ghee to this. Keep on cooking it until it leaves the sides of the pan. Transfer to a plate or bowl. Cool it and knead it a bit. Use as desired. You will get nearly 200 grams Khoya. #Recipe #EasyRecipe #Indian #Mithai #Yum #Delicious #Foodie #Blogger #GoodFood
