Instant Microwave Doodh Peda

Wishing everyone a very Happy and a Bright Diwali.. Due to lack of time to prepare elaborate sweets, I tried making this instant Doodh Peda that was taught to me by a friend. The recipe is very simple and requires just 3 ingredients. All the ingredients are available easily at any supermarket. Surprise your relatives and guests by serving them this instant and traditional delicacy.



Ingredients:

Milk Powder - 21/2 cups
Condensed milk - 1 14oz can (sweetened)
Unsalted butter - 1 stick

Method:

  • Sift the milk powder and set it aside.

  • Melt one stick of butter in a microwave safe glass bowl.

  • Once the butter has melted, add the milk powder and condensed milk and mix well.




  • Microwave it for 4 minutes. After every minute remove the bowl and mix the contents well.

  • After 4 minutes, the mixture would have thickened and now let the mixture cool for 10 minutes.

  • Take a spoon or a mini ice-cream scoop. Scoop out a small portion of the mixture and roll it out into a ball and flatten it.
  • You can stick an almond, cashew, pistachios or any dry fruit you like in the center of the Peda.


  • Enjoy your Diwali delicacy.
Happy Diwali to all.

  • You can shape the Pedas in any form you like.
  • Else you can pour the mixture on a greased tray and cut it in diamonds or squares.
  • You can also remove the entire mixture and flatten it out about 1/2 an inch thich and cut it using a cookie cutter for getting the desired shapes.
  • You can use edible silver foils, cake decoration materials to decorate the Pedas. You can get creative and decorate it the way you like.
  • Every microwave has a different power setting. Some may meed 3 minutes and other many need 5 minutes. Ensure that you remove the mixture every minute and mix it well so that it does not burn the milk solids.
