  • Milk powder - 1 cup
  • Khoya - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Cooking oil - 3 tbsp
  • Water - 1 cup
  • How to Make Bhunna Mava:

    1. Add the milk powder to a mixing bowl and pour the cooking oil slowly, all the while mixing with your fingertips to get a mixture that resembles bread crumbs.
    2. Next, add the evaporated milk till you get a crumbly mixture. Keep aside.
    3. Mix the sugar and water in a pan, add the elaichi seeds and boil till you get a one string consistency.
    4. Add in the milk powder mixture slowly, stirring all the time over a medium fire. (Do not break up the crumbs as they give it the mava texture.)
    5. When the oil starts coming out and the mixture leaves the sides of the pan, turn off the fire.
    6. Pour into a greased oven proof tray and bake at 300 degrees till the top becomes browned slightly (about 10 to 15 minutes).
    7. Take it out of the oven and let it cool for about half an hour.
    8. Cut it into desired shapes and decorate with silver vark (optional).
