Homemade condensed milk - Condensed milk with four ingredients With step by step photos and video

Just as the name, condensed milk is the milk based product where all the water from milk is evaporated away until it reaches 1/4th of its volume. Quite a big process still we can make it with the same taste and texture at home whenever we need. I think making condensed milk at home is much healthier option than buying it from outside as it is purely home made and contain any preservatives.

Everybody considers condensed milk as an inevitable part of a wide variety of recipes. In India, the kheer/payasam in which milk is used as a main ingredient can utilize this sweetened condensed milk in order to reduce the effort and time. As we know many of our pal payasam is cooking the pulses until it reaches a very thick consistency. 

If we can make payasam at home, why can't we make the condensed milk, almost the same process, same effort, but can be stored for a long time in the fridge and utilize in a jiffy. Making large quantities of condensed milk will take so many hours with continuous effort, but small quantities, we can do quickly at home.

Sweetened evaporated milk 
Preparation time: 2 minutes | Cooking time: 20 minutes | Total time: 22 Minutes



  • 500 ml milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/8 + teaspoon baking soda

How to make Condensed milk at home

  1. Take milk and sugar in a thick bottomed wide mouthed pan. Then cook over high flame till the milk boils. Remember to stir in between so that the milk does not sick to the bottom. Also, stir towards one side only, either close wise or anti-clockwise direction, otherwise the milk will curdle.

  2. Once the milk boils completely, you can reduce the flame to low and do further cooking on low flame with continuous stirring, but it takes a long time to reach the end product, so I recommend you to cook on medium high flame or high flame with continuous stirring . Do scrape the sides in between.

  3. Continue cooking till the milk reduce to half. It will have a pale yellow color at this stage and will have creamy texture. At this stage you can add baking soda. The addition of baking soda will fasten the process and you will experience the fast change in the milk just after the addition of this ingredient.
  4. Once it has reached cream consistency just like condensed milk, you can put a pinch of salt in order to balance the taste. Boil for a minute or two and then switch off the flame.
  5. Wait till the condensed milk turns completely cool, it will thicken little bit more.
  6. Then strain through a tea strainer and transfer this in an air tight container and refrigerate.  

Happy cooking
