Yuktya (युक्त्य) refers to “properly” (viz., boiled), as mentioned in verse 5.28-29 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] among the (different kinds of milk [viz., payas]), [...] raw [viz., āma] milk (is) causative of effluxions (and) heavy, properly [viz., yuktyā] boiled one different from this; very heavy is (milk that has been) excessively boiled; (that which is still) warm from milking (is) nectar-like”.

Note: Yuktyā (“properly”) has been metaphrased by rigs-pas, which is a Sanskritism doubtless occasioned by the basic instrumental ; hence it has been altered to rigs-par in CD.
