How to Boil Milk in India

Milk is used in every home in India. It is used in both raw and after pasteurization. The second form is very common in India. Milk is available to us through the following ways- a) Available in packets and sold at shops b) Directly from the cow sheds The packet ones are already pasteurized and sold to us. However, we still boil at home in order to be healthy and as a precautionary measure.
