While scrolling for some easy sweet, I got the idea from Ramya Vijayakumar of Passion for cooking.
Please click to see her cute Doodh peda and the original recipe.
Thanks Ramya. I have seen my mother struggling for hours to get this sweet from scratch. But your method is so handy and I made the entire batch without much effort.
I am noting down the recipe for my use.
Milk Powder – 2 cup
(I used 3 cups of fat free milk powder)
Sweetened Condensed Milk – 1 can (14 oz)
Butter – 1/2 cup (8 tbsp)
Saffron – few strands
Water – 2 tsp
Almonds - 5
Melt the butter.
Mix the butter, condensed milk , milk powder thoroughly and microwave them for 2 - 3 minutes. Stir twice in between.
Dissolve the saffron in warm water and mix with the dough.Again microwave it for 2 more minutes. (Instead of saffron we can add different food colors also, by dividing the dough).
Let them cool. Now they will come to chapati dough consistency.
Make small balls and get the desired shape.
decorate with slivered almonds and silver varakh.
Milk peda is ready!
Makes 30 pieces (approximately).
Another important thing is , thanks to the efforts of all the bloggers and friends , the controversial blog that displayed my posts along with some of my friends' without our permission, is now shut down.
This could not have happened without all your efforts. I owe a million thanks to each and every one who are with us during this time.
An Update:I prepared some milk pedas for hubby's office picnic / pot luck (Aug 6 2010). Here are some snaps to enjoy.
I pasted the ingredient list along with the box for reference.. Hubby was so happy to carry these cuties to share with his friends:)
