Doodh Peda

Doodh Peda is one of  the most popular North Indian desserts. Pedas are rich, sweet and quick to make traditional sweet recipe. I have taken the short cut method to prepare Doodh Peda using condensed milk and milk powder. The traditional version of Doodh Peda is labor intensive but has a flavor and texture that is creamy and absolutely melt-in-the-mouth.


Milk Powder - 2 cups
Condensed milk - 14 oz ( 1 can)
Butter - 1 stick (unsalted)
Nuts - 1/4 cup (cashew, dry grapes)
cardamom - 6 ( just grind the black seeds inside the cardamom )
saffron - a pinch

Method :

Microwave the butter stick in a wide bowl for a minute.

Now add the milk powder and condensed milk and mix them all gently. Just fold everything.

Now microwave the whole mixture for 4 minutes and every other minute take it out mix it gently and evenly.

Finally add the ground cardamom powder and saffron into it.

After that let it cool until you can handle the mixture in your hand.

Take  a wide plate and grease it.

Now make a round balls out  of the mixture using your hand and flatten them to form pedas and place it in.
And just decorate them with your favorite nuts.
