Prep Time:5 mins

Total Time:15 mins
Course:sweets
Cuisine:north indian
Servings (change the number to scale):12 pedas
(1 CUP = 250 ML)

Ingredients

  • 200 to 205 grams grated khoya or 1 cup tightly packed grated khoya (mawa or evaporated and dried milk solids)
  • ½ cup sugar or 125 grams sugar, add as required
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 to 4 pistachios or almonds , thinly sliced

Instructions

making peda mixture

  • First grate or crumble 200 to 205 grams of khoya. Take the grated khoya in a heavy kadai or pan. You will need 1 cup tightly packed grated khoya. You can use homemade or store brought khoya. I have used instant khoya. 
  • Add ½ cup sugar (125 grams) and ½ teaspoon cardamom powder.
  • Keep the pan on a stove top on a low flame.
  • Then mix the khoya with the sugar very well. 
  • Next add 2 to 3 tablespoons milk. mix well.
  • You will see the sugar melting and the mixture getting a liquid consistency.
  • Continuously keep on stirring and simmer the peda mixture. You have to stir non-stop so that the mixture does not get browned from the bottom.
  • Stir often and the mixture will start bubbling.
  • Continue to stir and cook till the mixture thickens and leaves the sides of the pan.
  • Then immediately pour the entire peda mixture in a steel plate or a tray. When you pour the mixture it will still be in a molten state but thickened. Do not over cook as then the pedas will become chewy.
  • Let it become warm at room temperature.

making doodh peda

  • Now take small portions from the lukewarm peda mixture and roll them in small to medium balls.
  • Place a few slivered pistachios or almonds on top of each peda ball.
  • With a peda maker, press each ball to give a distinct design on top of it. If you do not have a peda maker, then just roll the mixture in balls and then flatten them. Press a few almonds or pistachios on top.
  • Make a design on all doodh peda with the peda maker. In case the doodh peda fall flat and do not hold shape, then they are slightly undercooked. Gather all the mixture together and heat again in the pan for 2 to 3 minutes or till the mixture leaves sides of the pan.
  • Now you can store the milk peda for a few hours at room temperature and then serve later. Leftovers can be refrigerated. This doodh peda recipe yields 12 medium sized pedas.

Notes

  • This peda recipe can be halved, doubled or tripled.

  1. Hello Dassana,
    Do you know if this will taste good without the cardamom because I am not able to find it where I live.

    • cardamom gives a very nice aroma. add 1 pinch (15 to 18 strands) saffron (kesar) or rose water if you do have cardamoms. for rose water add 1 tablespoon when the peda mixture is done in the pan. give a mix. for saffron dissolve it in 2 tablespoons of warm milk for 15 minutes. add this mixture to the khoya and then cook everything together.
