This once about 10 yrs ago I kept on boiling in micro.. and almost a gallon of milk ended up as a medium size bowl of kheer. To this day my family remembers the dish, a couple tablespoons of that would fill you up
right, try this coming weekend with your LO at home .
Really, I do love microwave cooking but for milk/egg products, I generally stick with stove. There was once I was heating up milk in microwave and it boiled over. I couldnt clean it right away and boy, it took 30 mins of soaking for me to get a clean plate again!

When the milk starts thickening, add some crumbled pedas. But be careful of sweetness and flavor of peda. OR you can add barfi too. Make sure it don't dissolve completely so that basundi gets grainy structure.
Also you can use "khoya" aka maawa.
But I generally dont have mava/burfi lying around
