Totally khova should be microwaved for 4 mins.

Tips :

If your mixture becomes watery refrigerate for 2-3 hrs and make pedas.  If it becomes too hard add 2tsp milk and heat slightly and make pedas. Home made khova will be very soft and tasty. I always prepare khova at home. Though it takes more time to condense texture will be very good. You can prepare khova keep refrigerated and use for all type of sweets when necessary.
