Milk Peda

Peda is a popular Indian sweet that is traditionally made with khoya/mava or evaporated milk. This is a cheat’s version of making peda with condensed milk. Apart from condensed milkmilk powder and ghee/butter is also added in these pedas. There is no need to add any sugar at all.

  • .Milk powder-11/2 cup
  • .Condensed milk -400gms
  • .Cardamom powder-1/2 tsp
  • .Butter or ghee, melted-1/4 cup
  • .Almonds -few


.In a wide non stick pan, combine the condensed milk and milk powder and mix it into a smooth paste without any lumps. It should be like a thick idli batter. Add the cardamom powder, ghee or butter into the mixture and stir to combine well.

.Place the pan on medium heat and stir continuously until it becomes a thick batter.

.Turn off the heat as soon as the mixture thickens and you see it leaving the sides of the pan. The process will be a little hard, as the mixture will thicken up quickly. The mixture will thicken further when it is cooling down.

.Once it becomes thick and leaves the sides of the pan turn off the heat and transfer the peda dough to another bowl and allow it to cool to a temperature such that you can use your hands to knead them.

.Once cooled, knead the peda dough until smooth and fluffy. You can add a little ghee to knead if the peda's are too hard.

.Divide the dough into small lemon sized balls. Make an impression with the thumb in the center and place a piece of almonds in the center.
