Instead of Khoya you can also use condensed milk. and we do it microwave also it is very easy. Takes only 5-10 mins

instead of using Khoya as not available fresh Paneer can be used......just squezee all the water and knead it like a dough with powdered sugar ,saffron, caradman powder and serve with the garnishing of Pistacheos

I am in australia and we don't get to buy khoya. Is there any other option of making peda or a way to make khoya.
