Milk Peda | Kesar Peda| Milk Peda with milk powder | Diwali Sweets

Milk peda is one of my favorite sweets in childhood, now i'm not big fan, but occasionally i can have some pedas. I like  pedas which have some cracks on top and when you put it in your mouth, you can sense the grainy texture of khoya in your tongue, but in most of the recipes i saw, it looks so soft on outside without any cracks, so i keep postponing to make pedas at home.
At last,i found the recipe to my expectation and it looks very easy to make with milk powder. I have a pack of milk powder in my counter for months without touching, so thought as it's the best way to use those milk powder and turns them into yummy diwali sweets.

Milk Peda

Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 15 minsServes : 12 pedas 
Recipe Category: Sweets | Recipe Cuisine: Indian
Milk Powder - 1 cup
Heavy Cream - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Saffron - few strands
Warm milk - 11/2 tbsp
Cardamom - 2 crushed

Measure cream and powder ,soak saffron in wark milk.Heat the pan add cream and milk powder.Mix it well and it becomes single mass within few minutes. Now cook the milk powder and heavy cream, with the spatula, spread the milk powder mixture in the pan and flip it. Keep doing this for 3 mins.Now add the saffron along with milk and mix well.Keep on stirring continuously without leaving unattended for a sec.At one stage, the whole mixture doesn't stick to the pan and moves along with the spatula easily. It's called khoya. After adding saffron milk, it takes 11 mins to achieve this stage on medium flame.Remove the  khoya to the plate immediately and spread it on the plate to cool quickly.Once it's warm(hand bearable temperature), it should be crumble, at this stage ,add sugar and cardamom powder.Mix it well with your hand(i transfer the mixture to bowl for easy mixing), if needed add 1 or 2 tsp of milk to form a dough like consistency. Now make small balls and flatten it with your hands. Do the same for the remaining.On the top of the peda, you can make any type of impression you like, i simply make some cross with knife.Tasty Milk Peda is ready.
  • Cooking milk powder mixture on low flame is very important to get the perfect texture.
  • Add sugar when the khoya is warm, so it will be easy to mix together.
  • Don't add sugar when it's hot, the sugar will melt and you can't make pedas.
  • When it's warm, the khoya should be crumble., that's the correct texture.  
Look at those texture
