Is it possible to prepare Homemade Condensed Milk/Milkmaid? Yes, it’s a very easy process and it takes only half an hour for the whole process. Homemade Condensed Milk/Milkmaid is very economical and can be stored in the fridge for further use.
What is the shelf life of homemade condensed milk?
I am not sure about it. But what is the point in keeping in the fridge if it can be prepared so easily – just prepare whenever you need and enjoy!! Make fresh for a new dish.
Where should condensed milk be used?
There is a long list of desserts in which you can use condensed milk or Milkmaid. As an example, you can bake a cake with condensed milk Eggless Vanilla Sponge Cake with Condensed Milk. Moreover, the long traditional method to prepare a few Indian sweets and desserts can be reduced if you use that in your recipe Naariyal Ke Laddoo
The best part about preparing condensed milk is that it needs only 3 ingredients. These 3 ingredients are always available in your kitchen. So come, let’s prepare Homemade Condensed Milk from scratch…
Full fat milk 1/2 litre
Sugar 170 gm
A pinch of baking soda
A small note:
As we are preparing condensed milk or milkmaid at home, we have the liberty to control the quantity of sugar here. Depending on your taste bud, you can use 150 to 200 gram of sugar for 500 millilitre of milk.
Start boiling milk in a pan. As it begins to rise, add sugar and keep stirring on medium to high flame for 15 – 20 minutes. We can keep the flame on sim heat too but the process would take a much longer time.
The colour of milk will start changing once it starts thickening.
Milk will become quite thick or condensed after 15-20 minutes – switch off the gas at this time and add a pinch of baking soda. There will be some foam after adding baking soda, but that will settle down. Let condensed milk cool down completely.
Once it cools down, there might be a layer of cream (malai) on top of it. So just give it a quick churn in a mixer and you will have smooth, creamy luscious Homemade Condensed Milk.
Fill it in a dry bottle, keep in the fridge and use in any delicious dessert.

Hey Deeksha, that is a very interesting recipe. It had never occurred to me that this important ingredient of so many desserts could be made at home so easily.
Narendra, thank you very much. Nowadays things are so easily available in the market that we are forgetting how our grandparents used to prepare everything in the kitchen. It used to be fresh and very economical. Sometimes I think next generation will stop buying groceries also.
So very true, Deeksha! With so called convenience of processed foods has creeped in disease and malaise. In our quest for modernisation we are forgetting the wisdom of our simple past. I still recall the words of a doctor many years ago – to keep healthy, just eat what your grandmother ate!
Couldn’t agree more Narendra. I firmly believe that homemade junk food is far better than restaurant salad!
Excellent!! I never thought this could be so easy. Thank you for sharing. Much needed in this hour

Ready Condensed Milk is so easily available that it doesn’t occur to us to prepare by ourselves😊
It never occurred to me to make condensed milk at home. It is a good idea because the sugar level can be controlled. What is the purpose of the baking soda? How does it affect the recipe?
Kamini, thank you very much 😊
To control sugar portion was the most important fact behind preparing it at home. Otherwise now condensed milk is easily available in small shops also. Baking soda helps to preserve the deep flavor.
Thank you re answering my baking soda question.
Definitely going to try this soon. Thanks for sharing this.

Excellent work Deeksha !! 💕

Great information. Don’t have to hunt for condensed milk 😊
Thank you very much Sunith. Yes, and the best part is that we can control the quantity of sugar also.

Wow! I never thought we could easily make our own condense milk as I always buy in the stores and they can be quite expensive too!
Thank you very much.
