Milk Peda in Microwave (Doodh Peda)



 First of all I would like to apologize to all my Blogger Friends for not being able to post any new recipes in the last week. Actually, it was Durga Puja (The most awaited festival amongst Bengalis) when I was pandal hopping with my parents, husband & little child. Trust me we had a gala time. 

Now coming back to business, today I am going to post a dessert called Milk Pedha (a famous North Indian preparation). This sweet has a Cultural significance during festivals and it is mandatorily offered to the Gods. The most famous Pedas are available in Mathura town in the State U.P and also in a town in Dharwad in Karnataka State. This sweet is mostly round in shape prepared with Khoya ( a milk derivative ) takes less time than other sweets and is liked by child till elders. I have prepared it in microwave to save time. Do give it a try.....


                                                                                
                                                                     
Yields: 20-22 pedas, Preparation time: 7-8 minutes


Ingredients:
1 can Sweet condensed milk (I have used Milkmade)
6 tbsp Unsalted butter
3 cups Milk powder
1/4 tsp Cardamom powder
2 tsp Ghee (for greasing palm only)


Method:
Place butter in a microwave safe bowl and microwave (at 100%) for 12 seconds. Now in the same bowl whisk together milk powder, condensed milk and cardamom powder. Total time to microwave this mixture is 8 minutes, however, to allow uniform gelling of the mixture, take out the mixture from the microwave after every 2 minutes and stir well. 


                                                               
Let the mixture cool down. Grease your palm with little ghee before shaping them into lemon sized balls, flatten a bit to give them perfect peda shape. And enjoy this instant peda after keeping them in refrigerator for an hour.
