Homemade Instant Mawa Recipe is dried evaporated milk. Milk is simmered till it is reduced to 1/5th. Mawa is used a lot in Indian cuisine especially for the preparation of desserts.
Mawa is of different kinds. There is hard mawa, soft mawa, daanedar mawa. They differ in their texture and use.
There are times when mawa is not easily available in the market or is not of the quality that we want. In such situations, homemade mawa comes to the rescue. But the situation worsens when there are time and effort constraints. We want to make mawa at home in less time with no efforts. Well, in that case, this recipe comes to the rescue which needs 5 minutes of cooking only. And it is perfect for any barfi, gulabjamun or any other sweet. I made chana barfi, gujiya using the Instant Mawa.
