Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to all the readers!
May God bless you with all happiness in life...

A festival is incomplete without sweet.. Today I am sharing a recipe of milk peda which can be prepared using milk powder and condensed milk. Peda is a famous Indian sweet dish which is traditionally prepared using khoya and sugar. Here instead of khoya, milk powder is used to prepare pedas. Our family has a sweet tooth and we love trying different types of sweet dishes.



Peda is one of my favourite sweet. Unlike other Bengali sweets the sweetness of peda is more hence I cannot have more than one at a time despite of my sweet tooth...he he...While preparing milk peda you can soak saffron in little milk and add to the mixture to prepare kesar milk peda... Isn't it interesting! Just add one ingredient which change the color and taste of the sweet dish from the original one and you get a new sweet dish with subtle difference..You can use peda stamps to get nice design on the pedas.


Milk Peda / Doodh Peda
Ingredients

Condensed Milk - 1/2 tin (200 gms)
Milk powder - 1 cup
Melted Ghee - 2 tsp + little more for greasing
Pistachios - 8-10 chopped finely

Procedure

1. Take a non-stick pan and add condensed milk and milk powder. Whisk it well to avoid lumps.
2. Now switch on the gas and keep stirring until the mixture starts to leave the sides of the pan. When it starts leaving the sides add ghee and give a quick stir. 
3. When the mixture become thick and slightly sticky in texture this time you can take a small portion to check whether you are able to roll a ball. 
4. If yes then switch off gas and allow to cool for 10 mins. Later when it is slightly warm take some amount of mixture and roll lemon size balls. Now flatten the ball using your palm and make a small dent in the center.Put the chopped pistachios in the dent and keep it in a plate. Follow the same procedures to prepare remaining pedas. 
 5. Allow to rest them for 1 to 2 hour. Initially it would be chewy but later you will get the perfect texture.
