  1. Hello Khursheed, Please see the mawa ni boi recipe for sugar quantity. Mawa ni boi will not stay without refrigeration since it is made of milk. Refrigerated 15 days.

  2. You said that mawa ni boi too is made in the same way. My question is what will be the ration of mawa and sugar. mawa being sweet we may need less sugar. How long can mawa ni boi stay with and without refrigerating. Thanx
