- Prep Time10 min
- Cook Time15 min
- Total Time25 min
- 1 Cup Milk Powder + 2 Tsp
- 1 Cup Condensed Milk
- 1/2 Tsp of Cardamom
- 2 Tsp of Ghee
- A good fat pinch of Saffron dissolved in 2 Tsp of Warm Milk
- Extra Ghee for greasing your palms
Melt your ghee in a wide pan.
Add in condensed milk and milk powder to the pan and constantly stir over medium heat. Break any lumps that form, otherwise your peda might not have a smooth finish.
Continue to stir the mixture on medium heat for 8-10 minutes.
Add the saffron infused milk and cardamom powder. The mixture will seem like it’s falling apart, but it will come back together with a few extra minutes of stirring over the heat.
Check if the mixture is sticky by pinching a small ball on top. If the mixture is sticky, continue to stir and cook for 2 minutes.
Remove the pan of the flame. Move the mixture to another plate to allow it to cool down faster.
Grease your palm with ghee, pinch a small portion from the mixture and roll it into a peda shape. Press with your thumb to give a little indentation to your peda.
Garnish with almonds, pistachio, and saffron.
