  • Microwave safe bowl


  • 2 cups milk powder
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream


  • In a microwave safe bowl combine the milk powder and whipping cream together. Mix well with a fork.
  • Place in microwave and heat for 1 minute.
  • Remove the bowl, give the mixture a good mix.
  • Microwave again for 1 minute, and then mix with a fork. Repeat this process one more time.
  • By now the mixture will have lost some of it’s moisture and will be forming clumps.
  • Microwave in 30 seconds duration for 2-3 times. Mixing the mixture well in between each time.
  • When most of the moisture is gone and the khoya has a dry consistency, you can transfer it to a bowl and store for up to 10 days in the fridge.


Milk Powder: I used Almarai Milk Powder but you can also use other brands such as Nido with success. This is not the same as tea whiteners.
Heavy whipping cream: Also known as whipping cream or thick cream.
