Dhoodh Peda - Recipe for a simple and easy sweet

It had been more than 15 years since I started full fledged cooking and sweets making. My first sweet was Mysore Pa and it defenitely turned out too well. It definitely gave me enough confidence to try out more and more sweets. I make Basundi quite often as it is my hubby's favourite sweet. Still I kept postponing one particular sweet which is mine and my family's all time favourite and it is none other than dhoodh peda. Whenever we want to eat it, I get a few from our favourite sweet stall and finish it off.

Whenever I plan to make this Dhoodh Peda some thing will stop me and I will end up making up something else. Still the year before last I did attempt it with cocoa but it turned out to be chocolate lolipop and I was never able to make a peda. But this year I was determined to make it as many of my friends said it is very easy to make in microwave. But Saillu's kitchen website gave me even more confidence to do it in stove top. Though I followed the recipe I did make a few alterations.

Ghee - 1/4 cup
Milk Maid - 2 tins (400 gms each)
Milk Powder - 500 gms
Cardomom Powder - 1/2 sp
Nuts for decoration. I decorated a few with halved cashew nut and a few with unsalted pistachio.

Took me 15 mins for making it and 30 mins for making the Peda.

In a hard bottom pan add ghee, condensed milk, milkpowder and mix well. In medium flame mix well. Ensure no lumps are formed. Keep stirring till it becomes thick enough and does not stick to the sides of the pan. Transfer it to another plate. Make balls and flatten it and decorate it with nuts.

Refrigerate it and it can be used for a week.
