Here’s how to identify the real Mawa
Add a little sugar to the mawa and heat it. If it starts releasing water, it’s wrong.
Rub mawa on your thumbnail. The smell of ghee will come from real mawa.
Make khoya balls. If this ball starts to explode, then understand that Mawa is fake or adulterated.
– Real mawa does not stick in the mouth while fake mawa will stick.
