So how was your new year celebrations? For me the new year has started on a good note. Owning a microwave oven has been my dream for so many years and it came true on the last day of last year. Yes, I bought a microwave oven on 31st December and made a sweet for the new year in it. I bought a solo version as I already have an OTG. I am not very much interested in cooking in MW. I mainly bought it for my ganache and chocolate preparations. And this instant mawa also has been in my mind ever since I saw it at Tamalapaku. At that time when I was new to blogging and many ingredients, I had to put away the thought of trying it over stove top because I didn’t know what evaporated milk was. Now after 3 year I have some knowledge about substitutions. So with my brand new microwave oven and a substitute for the evaporated milk, I tried it today morning. And after 2 1/2 minutes, I was so happy that I had a batch of delicious mawa. Hereafter I will never waste my time and gas using the stove top method. But if you don’t have a microwave then here is the method I usually use to make mawa (it takes a lot of time but the result is amazing).
