Disclaimer: I am in Bangalore right now and have nothing to do with this khova recipe except for the fact that I am hogging on sinfully delicious gulab jamuns amma has made with the home made khova. A well deserved end to what has been a long day with too many lectures and some prolonged seemingly endless sitting down!!
Patti used to make khova in the stove top always – while the khova was getting ready on one burner, she would finish her regular cooking in another. Amma used to prepare khova in the microwave thinking it would save time only to realize that she was actually spending more time in opening the oven door to stir constantly and handling the glass. These days she has switched to making the khova on the stovetop.
Makes: approximately 11/2 cups of khova
Cooking time: 1.5 hours
Ingredients/ Things required
- Milk – 1.5 litres
- Heavy bottomed non stick deep pan
Lower flame after milk reaches boiling point
- Bring the milk to boil in the deep non stick pan. Reduce the flame to between low to medium and continue to heat the milk.
- Stir occasionally in regular intervals until the milk completely thickens to form the khova. This will take approximately 1.5 hours.
