Recipe Notes

Quick Method to make Mawa at home: Take a pan and add 1 liter whole milk and bring it to boiling point. Lower the flame and continue to boil. Keep stirring so that it does not stick to the pan. Stir vigorously when milk starts to thicken. Mawa is ready when the milk stops simmering and its completely dry. Transfer it into a bowl and keep it aside to cool.
