Mix sugar with kova in a microwave glass ware and cook in high for 6 minutes. Stirring in between every minute.
Now add milk little by little i.e for every 2 min add little bit milk so that they don’t over flow. Mix well and microwave until the milk and sugar is totally dissolved and forms into thick paste and turns golden in color. Mine took 10 min.
