    Re: Quick help needed... Substitute for khoya?

    Omg...I was thinking the same thing this morning.I was thinking of making gajar halwa and was wondering what can be a substitute for khoya...

    Sorry I have no idea what can be a substitute.I know people make it from scratch using ricotta and powdered milk but it sounds like a lot of work and I also do not know how to make it.

    p.S...share the recipe for coconut halwa please...

      I saw this recipe in masala kitchen magazine that a mmi brought from Pakistan... Should I try it first or just write down the recipe? I have no idea how it will turn out!!!

            hmmm...yeah sounds like too sweet.Now that you mention it,I have heard of a microwave recipe as well.I think it used evaporated milk and powdered milk,definitely no ghee and yogurt.But if you have the stuff I guess you can try with small quantities and see because it sure does sound easy.

              I do not know about the one you are trying , but I have used ricotta cheese myself. It was good.

                the first 3 options sound do-able.

                  Mirch... Did you just heat up the ricotta cheese until it lost water or did you add anything else in there too??. Please share the exact recipe?

                  Chipsy..let me check it out!!! And remember my husband made the microwave khoya once? He is off to work but I would havebtried that!!!

                        I added one quart of half n half to one box of ricotta cheese and cooked it a few minutes when the conccotion precipitated I drained the water out and cooked a bit to make sure it looks like khoya and it did.

                            I use plain barfi(without nuts) in carrot halwa or any other halwa i cannot get my hands on khoya but making sure to reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe since barfi is sweet itself already.

                              i have just baked ricotta for khoya, you just have to keep stirring it from time to time when baking
