Doodh Peda | Milk Peda

Doodh Peda

Yesterday was Thursday and its the day we do detailed Aarthi for Shridi Sai Baba in the evening. So, I decided to make Doodh Peda for Him as it is one of His favourite sweet. It came out too good, and I was very happy to serve Baba with it. :)


Ingredients:
Full Cream Milk - 1 ltr (I used Fresh buffalo milk)
Sugar 2- 4 tbl spn (Optional)
Ghee - 1 tspn
Food Colour (Optional)

Method:
1) Take a heavy bottom wide pan and keep boiling milk till all the water in it evaporates.(Keep stirring the milk to avoid it from burning by sticking to the bottom on the vessel)
2) Once it starts thickening, add desired amount of sugar (Based on the natural sweetness in the milk)
3) And continue stirring till the bubbles from the milk disappears completely.
4) Now transfer into a bowl greased with ghee and once it comes to room temperature make small lemon sized balls and flatten them between your palms.
5) You can decorate it with one raisins/cashews/badam of your choice on each peda.
6) Refrigerate it for 4-5 hours for the pedas to set and retain the shape and now pedas are ready to serve.

Cheers!
Madhavi
