It's so nice to see how many cultures have similar foods just named differently.

What is the "optional ingredient"? Sounds like Koya, but I can't find it listed anywhere.

In Northern India we call Khoya..... this is made by milk. but it's very-very difficult to make at home. It's take too much time.... So, when I was in India, I used to buy from market. But here I can't get.
