Instant Peda

Peda is a sweet dish originating from Indian Sub continent. Traditionally Peda is made with khoya, sugar along with flavoring ingredients like saffron, cardamom powder and pistachio nuts. Khoya is made with evaporating full cream milk till all the water from milk is evaporated and only solid cream like mixture is left which is called Khoya. Sugar and other flavors like kesar or chocolate are added and cooked till all the moisture is evaporated. It takes a lot of time to make khoya and add other flavoring ingredients to make peda. 

Today I will be preparing Instant peda which can be made in just 30 minutes. With very few ingredients you can make a delicious sweet dish. This recipe goes to week 2, day 2 of Blogging Marathon 107 under the theme " Instant Dishes".


Milk powder 1 1/2 cup
Condensed milk 1 1/2 cup
Milk  1/3 cup
Butter / Ghee 1 tbsp
Pinch of Saffron
Cardamom powder 1/4 tsp


In a mixing bowl add milk powder and milk, mix to make a smooth paste.
In a non stick deep pan, add ghee and condensed milk.
On medium heat keep stirring until ghee is mixed well.
Now add the milk powder mixture and keep whisking until the mixture thickens.
Keep stirring till the mixture leaves the pan and doesn't stick to the pan.
Transfer the mixture to another plate and let it cool for few minutes.
Grease your hands and take a small ball size amount of dough.
Roll the dough to give it a peda shape.
Garnish with any dry fruits.
