Milk peda (Milk Fudge/Doodh Peda) is a rich and delicious sweet made up of milk, sugar and butter. This is originated from northen part of India and turned to be a popular dessert among all Indians. Making doodh peda in traditional way is too time consuming and you may have to keep on stirring the boiling milk probably for hours.
What about making your own pedas within 10 minutes. Sounds great? 🙂 This easy peda recipe uses condensed milk, milk powder and butter.
- Milk Powder : 3 cups
- Condensed Milk : 400g [1 can]
- Butter : 1 stick (around 110g)
In a big bowl, add butter and melt it by keeping in microwave for 1minute.
Add condensed milk and milk powder to the bowl and mix well.
Keep the mix (from Step 2) in microwave for 2 minutes.Take out and stir well.
Repeat Step3 one more time and check the consistency. Take a small part of it and try to make a ball, if you feel it is sticky keep again for a minute or two. Allow it to cool.
Take a small portion, knead and make soft ball. This can be pressed in a mould to get some nice shapes. I usually make round shaped pedas using hand and then press some stamp on top of it. Here I used my daughter’s “O” symbol from her playdough 🙂
Preparation (on flame/heat):
Alternately, you can prepare on a pan if oven is not available. Take a pan and add butter. Keep the pan on medium flame/heat and melt the butter. Take out from the flame and add milk powder and condensed milk and mix well. Again keep on flame/heat and keep on stirring till it get a proper consistency (it should not be sticky when you make a ball using small portion of it). Allow it cool. Follow Step5
