Procedure:
Step1:
Boil the milk in a heavy sauce pan (preferable non stick for easier cleaning)


Step2:
Reduce the flame and simmer for around 50 minutes.(Keep it reduced to the lowermost gas mark)


Step3:
After it has reduced to half of the quantity, add sugar and stir well


Step4:
Simmer for another 20 - 25 minutes. Stir it in between (may be very 5 minutes) and do not allow to burn.Scrape the sides as well.
