Recipe type: Sweet
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • Milk powder - 2 cup
  • Condensed Milk - 1 tin (396 grams)
  • Milk - ¼ cup
  • Ghee/ Melted butter - 3 tbsp + to Grease hand while making
  • Saffron - ⅛ tsp (optional)
  • Almonds - 2 tbsp + 1 tsp, finely chopped
  • Cardamom Powder - ⅛ tsp
  • Salt - pinch
Method
  1. Soak saffron in warm milk and set aside
  2. In a heavy bottomed pan (I used non stick pan) add all the ingredients except ghee and mix well to avoid lumps. It will be like thick idli batter
  3. In medium flame cook the mixture, sauté continuously to avoid lumps and also from the dough sticking to the pan. Add ghee to the mixture
  4. Cook till it becomes a non Sticky mass. Take a small portion of it and try making ball if it you are able to make it switch off. If its sticky cook for some more time. If it starts cracking add a tsp of milk and cook for some more time to add mositure. It took around 7 minutes for me
  5. Switch off and let it cool for sometime. When it is warm enough to handle, take a small portion and make a ball. Flatten it to desired thickness, make a small dent in the center, add chopped almonds and arrange in a plate/ cookie tray. Repeat the same steps for the entire peda. Let it set for 2-3 hours in room temperature or in refrigerate it for a while. Peda is ready:-)
