Hello Malai Lovers! First thanks for visiting. Do you know what is malai? Of course you know because you are the malai lovers but this post is for those who throw malai and who don’t like malai so malai haters this post is for you. As we all know that Malai is a South Asian cooking ingredient. It is made by heating non-homogenized whole milk to about 80 °C (180 °F) for about one hour and then allowing to cool. A thick yellowish layer of fat and coagulated proteins forms on the surface, which is skimmed off. The process is usually repeated to remove most of the fat. Don’t throw away malai from your milk. Use it to make face packs which will give you flawless skin.

Are you one of those who chucks malai in the bin because you do not want to put on excess weight? Malai is nothing but clotted or milk cream and has wonderful benefits for your skin.
