    I made this weekend and I would recommend to keep an eye after 3 minutes because it will get overcooked and become dry khoya. I would prefer on stove top so I can have visual. Yes you can cook stove top and take it off the stove once it starts leaving sides.

    This sounds good, but can you make it on a stovetop, I'd appreciate the method. Thanks
