Easy Milk Peda Recipe / Doodh Peda Recipe

milk peda

Easy milk peda with condensed milk is my go to Diwali sweet. Doodh peda can be made in about 5 minutes and I usually call in my kids for rolling it out. Try making these easy pedas for your family or as a gift for friends and relatives.

My son is all in for Indian Sweets especially Coconut Ladoo and Payasam; I made this yesterday evening for him. He also helped me in rolling the pedas; we made a few ones with chopped almonds (badams) in the center; like the ones above picture and the rest we made into small balls (bite sized ones).

Step by Step Method:
Yields: 70-75 small bite sized balls.

These are the ingredients.

If you have saffron; just add a few strands in a table spoon of warm milk.

Add condensed milk and milk powder into an iron skillet or nonstick pan. Pour the saffron milk.

Then mix it well; it will look a bit crumbly. Heat the pan and put the flame to low. Keep mixing it in low flame (its a bit tough)...arm strength is in question here :). You have to keep the flame really low because we dont want the underside to get burned and change the color of the pedas.

After about 3-4 minutes; it will be nicely mixed and can form into a ball.

Allow it to cool down and with greased hands (ghee) roll into your desired shapes. 

This is a cheater and quick version; if you are looking for the traditional version, do visit
