Mawa – easy and handy

I am going to make mawa in microwave today. It is very handy and easy one. You can make mawa in pan with same ingredients. But to me microwave one is easy. Hope you will like.


Process [1]



• 1/3 cup milk powder

• 1 tablespoon clarified butter(ghee)

How to make:

Just mix milk and ghee together and place into refrigerator for 15 minute and crumble it or strain it to get perfect mawa.


Process [2]


• ½ cup milk powder

• ¼ cup milk

• 1 tablespoon clarified butter(ghee)


How to make:

1. Mix all ingredients together and put into microwave for 30 seconds.

2. Take out from microwave and stir.

3. Let it cool down for 30 seconds and put into oven again 15 seconds.

4. Take out from oven and stir it and cool down for 30 seconds. Repeat this process 8 times.


5. After that repeat  this process 4 times for 10 seconds or continue it until it becomes dry and grainy (because every microwave is different).

6. Mawa is ready to decor your desserts or make into a dessert.
