In Maharashtra, milk production is 69-lakh tonnes that of milk per annum with per capita availability 281gm/day (Anonymous, 2012). Out of the total milk produced in India, 46 per cent is consumed as liquid milk ,4 per cent converted into western milk products such as milk powders, processed butter and processed cheese and remaining 50 per cent is converted into traditional daily products, out of these 7 per cent of milk is used for the manufacture of khoa based sweets as pedha, burfi, kalakand, milk cake etc. Among various products, from milk, khoa occupies a prominent place in the Indian daily industry.
