Doodh Peda with condensed milk

Sa sent me the picture of the Doodh pedas that she made for Diwali.  They look so good.  Pedas are generally not the easiest dish to make.  However, she sourced this simplified recipe that uses condensed milk and milk powder from Subbu's Kitchen.  And what can be better when you have a recipe that is easy to make but yet tastes so good !

Makes about 25-30 pedas ( depending on the size)


Sweetened condensed milk - 1 tin ( 400 ml)
Milk powder - 4 cups (1 litre capacity approx)
Ghee - 4 tbsp
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp ( optional)
Saffron threads - few
Pistachios - few
Milk - a little to soak the saffron

Soak the saffron in milk - keep aside

Take a pan, heat the ghee
Add the condensed milk to the ghee in the pan.  Stir well.
Now add, the milk powder.  Keep stirring.
The mixture will begin to thicken

Add the milk with saffron threads.

Keep stirring.  The mixture will thicken further and you will find that it doesn't stick to the pan and you will be able to roll it in the pan with the ladle

The mixture would also have acquired a nice colour

Remove from heat.
Cool slightly till you are able to handle the mixture by hand
Take a lemon sized quantity of mixture and roll into a smooth ball, apply a little pressure and make a dent in the middle
Do this with the rest of the mixture
Place a pistachio in the dent in each peda.

Delicious Doodh peda is ready !
