Milkmaid is condensed milk. Condensed milk is cow's milk from which nearly 60% water has been removed. Milkmaid can be bought from the market or can also be prepared at home. To make condensed milk at home we need just three ingredients: full fat milk, sugar and some baking soda or soda-bicarbonate. First, take the milk in a deep bottom pan and start heating it. Let it come to a boil. Once the milk comes to boil add sugar while stirring it continuously. As the milk starts to thicken, add baking soda to it. Cook until the milk reaches the desired consistency of milkmaid. At this point turn off the gas and let the milk cool down completely. Do not overcook the milk or else it will turn solid once it cools down.
