Homemade Instant Mawa / Khoya | Instant khoya using Milk powder

Mawa/ khoya is nothing but milk solids made by continuous stirring of milk till it solidifies.This khoya  available in market will either sweetened or unsweetened.The process of making it is a lengthy one and need more effort .When I want to make some delicacies for this year many sweets called for this khoya and I was bit afraid to make it at home.While browsing for some easy method to make this I landed up into Viji's space to make this instant version.This one was little rubbery  and it failed while i tried to make burfi.The best recipe to make with this instant mawa will be any laddoo or gulab jamun.
