Khoya refers to a thick milk paste made by dehydrating or boiling milk. The thickness is achieved by stirring the milk over low heat until it becomes a thick paste or has a semi-solid form, this paste then pressed into cakes. A different texture of Khoya is also achieved by coagulating the milk with lemon juice before dehydrating. Khoya is mostly used in South Asian, cooking particularly in India for making sweetmeats and Indian cakes, and to enrich sweet or savory dishes. Khoya is also known as Khoa.
