Making Khoya, Mawa Recipe

Khoya is a reduced fresh milk used in making desserts and curries


Dairy Foods 102 Khoya

Traditionally, the milk is reduced by cooking it between 175F to 180 F, reducing water content by about 85%. This is long time consuming process. Khoya is a unique Indian food and not available in United States even at the Indian Grocery stores. We will try to emulate this product, using Ricotta Cheese, Evaporated milk, Dry Milk (Preferably whole milk) and unsalted butter. Khoya is prepared in all different consistencies for different applications. There are three types of Khoya: Batti, Chickna, and Daan-e-daar.

Fuzzy Math for reducing Milk


Batti Khoya (Hard Khoya)


Evaporated Milk: 1 Cup (252 grams)

Whole Dry Milk: 1 cup (128 grams) (Nido)

Knead Dry Milk with evaporated milk to form a ball of stiff hard dough. Put the milk ball in a muslin cloth. Put a rack in the pressure cooker. Place the milk ball on the rack so that it does not touch water in the pressure cooker. Steam cook it for 3 minutes at full pressure. Turn off heat. After pressure is released, remove the ball. Let it cool down to room temperature. Cure the milk ball in the refrigerator for 4 hours. Remove the cloth.


Chikna Khoya (Smooth Khoya)
