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.
