I love Pedas…. actually I love all the sweets (except those made with besan) 😐 Yumm….
Yesterday was Rakhi (Rakshabandhan), a festival where a sister ties a Rakhi, bond of love, to her brother’s wrist. I don’t like the notion that Rakhis are for protection, but I rather think, that they are a gesture of love between siblings. So, in my household, not only Tisha ties Rakhi to her Brothers, Otu & Renne’s hand, but boys too tie a Rakhi to Tisha’s wrist. More power to Love. ❤
I cherish these moments.
I cherish Milk Peda too…. so coming back to the recipe. 😉
- 400 gm Condensed Milk
- 1 ½ cup Milk Powder
- 1 tbsp Ghee/Butter
- ½ tbsp Cardamon Powder
- 1 tbsp milk
- 5-6 Pistachios for garnishing, cut length wise
- Heat ghee in a pan.
- Add condensed milk to it and mix slowly.
- When ghee is properly mixed with condensed milk, add Milk powder gently.
- Mix well, so that no lumps are formed.
- Check for consistency and add some milk if required.
- Cook until mixture start leaving the sides (you can use microwave too).
- Mix cardamon powder, and let it cool for few minutes.
- Grease your hands with ghee or butter and roll the mixture into small balls.
- Press in the middle gently and garnish with Pistachios or any other nut of your choice.
- All done. 😀
Milk Pedas are done and I am ready for celebrating Rakshabandhan.
