Long time back, for a get together party I wanted to make Carrot Kheer and needed condensed milk for the kheer. But I ran out of it, then got reminded of Sharmi's Post and checked her recipe. Unfortunately, the recipe needs milk powder and icing sugar which i don't have it in my pantry that time. For any recipe that uses milk powder, I use Milk-Mawa Powder instead. So I substituted milk powder with Milk-Mawa Powder & used regular granulated sugar. It turned out perfectly smooth and rich and more tasty than the canned ones. From that time, I started making my own Sweetened Condensed Milk for Eggless Cakes, Sweets & Desserts. Later, I found this recipe of Homemade Condensed Milk without milk powder and using Whole Milk. Have tried that way too, I always love to cook from the scratch and the homemade condensed milk from scratch using milk is really an awesome one. The flavor, taste, color and creaminess is unbeatable. More than the instant version love this one a lot. Even though it is a time consuming process, worth trying it for a great result. Just set your timer for 2 hours, and for every 12-15 minutes just give a gentle stir. As you are cooking in low heat it will not burn easily. You can see my pan in the step wise pictures. The bottom of the pan is clean without burnt milk solids. So try this basic recipe at least once to enjoy the real taste of sweetened condensed milk. I wanted to share these recipes here since long time and now sharing it for my Saturday's Kitchen Basics theme.
