Celebrating my 500th Post | Doodh Pedha | Easy Peda Recipe !


Its been almost 6 years I started blogging and its my 500th post. I am happy and thanks to everyone for encouraging.

I have been wanting to post this since many days, but really with my 2nd baby I really find myself so busy all the time enjoying the motherhood and I kept on postponing. I had this Kova lying in my fridge i had bought to prepare Gulab Jamun but I could not make. Then decide to make it before leaving to India. Since its my 500th post I had many other plans of starting few guest posts. This will happen next month.

My second baby is turning 1, I will be on vacation for 2weeks to visit temples and family in India. We will be doing Ayush Homam and tonsure his head.  So this trip is full of travelling to many places Chennai, Bangalore, Kerala and Coimbatore. This one is going to be hectic for all of us. So my break may extend few more days:-)


But now I will be giving recipe for Paal Peda/Doodh peda which is popular in Southern India. I love peda of Nandini in Bangalore and Dharwad Peda. It is too much sugar but very very tasty. Yes in Chennai Aavin Theratipaal. I will surely carry boxes back with me.

Last time I tried this sweet when we were leaving to Mumbai seeing a friends blog, which was in MW with condensed milk but it did not come out well and I did not know what to do so just threw it. This time wanted to try this for my Mother in law who doesn't eat much but this is her favourite. She was happy I guess:-)

This was really easy and was happy.

Now coming to the recipe.

Ingredients
Kova/Mawa - 1 pkt (unsweetened) Store bought
Sugar -1 cup + 1tblspn
Cardamom powder - 2 pinches
Saffron strands - a pinch
Ghee - 1 tblspn



Preparation method
Thaw the Kova/Mawa, crumble it by your hand and keep.
Heat a heavy bottom kadai, (keep medium flame to avoid burning) add 1/2 tspn ghee wait for a minute. Add the crumbled kova and mix.
Add sugar and mix well till it becomes little thick and leaving sides. Keep stirring continuously.
It will become thick and becomes like dough. But do not forget to scrap the sides and check it should not be hard. Add cardamom powder.
Remove it on a plate and allow to cool. You can also keep in fridge.
You can spread on greased plate and cut into shapes or grease your hands with ghee and start rolling to small balls and flatten it a bit.
Slowly make a thumbprint and decorate with saffron or nuts.



I even made few Rose pedas by adding rose syrup but did not take photo. The taste was different.

Notes - you can use Non stick kadai so its easy.
You can also make kova at home with full cream milk and reducing it.
Fresh Kova from shop gives you great Pedas.

Thank you friends for your support. Do shower your love and don't forget to like my page on FB.
