  • 4 cups Whole milk
  • ¾ cup Sugar
  • ¼ tsp Cardamom powder
  • 1 tsp Ghee


  • In a heavy wide pan, heat the milk until it boils. Using a wide pan really helps to quicken the cooking process.
  • Once the milk boils, reduce the heat to low-med and continue to cook, stirring frequently.
  • The milk will slowly begin to condense and about 60-80 mins later, it will attain a mud like consistency.
  • At this stage add the sugar and mix well. Continue to cook until the mixture thickens. Now add the ghee and cardamom powder and mix well. Cook it for 5 more minutes and you will notice that the mixture starts to come together in a halwa consistency.
  • Turn off the flame and allow it cool slightly.
  • Now using greased hand, knead the kova well.
  • Divide it into small balls and flatten it slightly. If needed, decorate using nuts of your choice.
  • I placed them in individual muffin liners.
