Doodh Peda / Milk Peda
Diwali festival is not complete without making this delicious Doodh Peda / Milk Peda recipe. This is a traditional recipe to make the Easy Peda for festival season.
Servings: 20 pieces
- 4 cups Whole milk
- ¾ cup Sugar
- ¼ tsp Cardamom powder
- 1 tsp Ghee
In a heavy wide pan, heat the milk until it boils. Using a wide pan really helps to quicken the cooking process.
Once the milk boils, reduce the heat to low-med and continue to cook, stirring frequently.
The milk will slowly begin to condense and about 60-80 mins later, it will attain a mud like consistency.
At this stage add the sugar and mix well. Continue to cook until the mixture thickens. Now add the ghee and cardamom powder and mix well. Cook it for 5 more minutes and you will notice that the mixture starts to come together in a halwa consistency.
Turn off the flame and allow it cool slightly.
Now using greased hand, knead the kova well.
Divide it into small balls and flatten it slightly. If needed, decorate using nuts of your choice.
I placed them in individual muffin liners.
