Any mithai with Khoya is totally irresistible, because of its rich, milky flavour. Not only that, khoya also imparts a creamy yet coarse texture that feels so wonderful on the palate. Here is the traditional way of preparing Khoya.

It does take a little time to thicken the milk, but it is completely worth the efforts as no shortcut will give the same intense flavour and mouth-feel. What you could do is, prepare some Khoya whenever you end up with some extra milk and time on your hands, ready to use when you prepare your favourite sweets like Carrot Halwa , Jaripalla Churma , Mava Kesar Roll , Pista Choco Roll , Amrit Modak etc.
