Doodh Peda/ Khoya Peda

Since everyone has been busy with Diwali preparations, I thought I will let you guys on one of the quickest sweets recipe. Yeah, that's doodh peda, or Milk Peda's. Faster way is to use the readily available fresh Khoya. I have listed the basic ingredients below. But you can make lot of variations to this. Especially with decorating. You can place a piece of dry fruit like almond sliver, cashew/ pistachio. Also you can add any flavors like mango or strawberry or rose essence.

Prep Time: 5 min | Cooking Time: 10 min | Makes : About 25 to 30 pedas


Khoya / Mawa - 2 cup, grated
Ghee - 2 tsp.
Sugar - 1/2 Cup
Saffron strands soaked in 1 tbsp. of milk (optional)
Cardamom Powder - 1 pinch (optional)

Method of Preparation:

~ Heat a thick bottomed pan and add ghee. 
~ Add grated khoya in it and on a low flame keep stirring until the mixture comes together.
~ Now add the sugar and saffron, give it a stir and switch off. 
~ When it's still hot and you can handle the mix with hands smeared with ghee, pull out small balls of peda, shape them into ball, then gently press the middle to make a thumb impression. 
~ Decorate them with desired dry fruit.
