Kharvas is milk based and is prepared by using the colostrum milk that a cow produces for the first few days after it delivers a calf. But this recipe is without colostrum due to its unavailability.
It tastes very similar to colostrum and also contains very close nutrients similar to colostrum, as cow milk itself contains same properties but in lesser amount than colostrum. Best dessert for chena sweet lovers, growing kids, pregnant & lactating mothers.
