Milk Peda- A quick version....


Peda is prepared with milk by stirring it continuously to form a thick mass and then shaped. Here is a quick method to prepare the same...






Milk Powder-2 cups
Condensed Milk-1 can/14oz
Butter-1/2 cup(1 stick)
Pista- to decorate



Method of Preparation:
1. Melt the butter in a pan and then add condensed milk and milk powder to it. Mix well to remove any lumps.
2. Cook on low heat stirring continuously  When the mixture starts to come from sides and forms to lump turn off the heat.
3. Grease your hands with ghee and when the heat of mixture is tolerable by hand make small rounds or discs and press pista on it.
4. Let it cool to room temperature.Serve or keep in air tight boxes and refrigerate.



Notes:
1. Powder you milk powder if they are not smooth.
2. Mix well in order to avoid lumps.
3. Do not increase heat more as the chance of sticking to the pan and browning is high.
4. Do cook till it separates from sides and forms a lump, else the peda will be soft.
5. While rolling the pedas are soft but once cooled the turn firm.
6. Use nuts of your choice.
7. You can add little crushed cardamom powder for flavor.
8. If refrigerated bring it to room temperature before serving.

    1. May be you cooked it little longer which might have resulted in drying the dough.The dough should be soft. while shaping u will have a soft sticky dough(grease hand with ghee) but once it cools it will be perfect. Too much cooking shud have resulted in drying of the dough thus resulting in cracks..Hope this helps..

  38. any alternative to condensed milk

    ReplyDelete
  39. The alternative is using milk and sugar. It is the traditional and long method as the milk has to reduce and become thick without getting stuck at the bottom.
