Milk Peda


When it comes to enjoying Indian sweets, I find Milk Pedas absolutely irresistible. Peda is a cookie shaped North Indian sweet made from khoya (a milk product). Pedas can be made in different shapes, sizes and flavors. Very easy to make both tradionally or in microwave. My version is on stove top....

Ingredients :

  1. Milk powder - 1½ Cup
  2. Heavy whipping cream - ½ cup
  3. Regular milk - ½ cup
  4. Confectioner's Sugar - 1½ Cups
  5. Cardamom seeds ground - 1 tsp
  6. Crushed Pistachio nuts & almonds - 2 tbsp

Method :

  • In a heavy bottom pan mix ingredients 1 through 5.

  • Heat it on a near boil 180ยบ F. Cook for about 20 minutes to 30 minutes. Continuously stir to prevent scorching. It should look like a ball of dough consistency.

  • Let it cool off so you can handle it. Now make about 1" diameter balls. Press down into patty shapes.

  • Sprinkle pistachios and almonds. Press down. Let the dish cool and store in the refrigerator.

Enjoy !!!

yummmm; you're right for choosing the version on the stove top rather than the microwave. The final taste and the texture is finer than when done with the quick method of cooking in a micro-oven. I 'm sure the result is worth the cooking time. has come out perfect!
