By popular demand i am sharing this lovely mawa recipe sent to me by Dipa Motwani from Malaga . Thank you soo much Dipa!!
This mawa can be served cold, or hot and with custard or crumbled and put into cake batter for mawa cake…. it can be also crumbled and put into kulfi…

1 kilo milk powder , which is like 4 cups
milk as needed to make a dough(liquid milk)
500 grams of sugar (2 cups)
500 ml  of water (2 cups)
250 ml of oil
1 tablespoon of Nitu Didi Cardamom powder
1 pinch of Nitu Didi pure spanish saffron

Make a dough with the milk powder using the liquid milk with the cardamom powder. Make a stiff dough and cover it and keep it aside. In a thick bottomed big casserole pan bring the water and sugar to boil with Nitu Didi pure spanish saffron and boil till it thickens a  bit. Grate the milk dough and put it into the syrup and cook till it thickens, Slowly keep on adding the oil till the mixture leaves the sides of the pan. You will see how the color changes. Pour it into a greased dish and cover it when its cooled. Wrap the dish in a kitchen towel and leave it for 24 hours to set . Cut into pieces and serve. Here you have the most delicious mawa!!!
3 cheers to Dipa for the recipe and the pic….
