Doodh Peda - Instant Microwave Method

#MilkPeda, popularly known as #DoodhPeda is one of the favorite sweets of many people. Making milk peda is a time consuming process and have to be present near the stove stirring simmering milk continuously with a ladle. So better to buy from any sweet shops or from co operative milk society's milk outlets.
But recently I came across an instant method of preparing this yummy sweet using microwave oven. The measurements were in ounce. I converted them into our simple cups measurement. I tried today and the result is too good!!
Here is the recipe.

Doodh Peda [ Instant Doodh Peda ]

Ingredients :
1 Tbsp                                    Butter
1/2 Cup                                  Milk Maid
3/4 Cup                                  Milk Powder
A small quantity                      Almond shavings

Method :
Microwave butter for 10 seconds to melt.
Now add milkmaid and milk powder.


Mix well with a ladle without lumps.
The mixture should not be watery, but slightly thick.


Microwave for 3 minutes.
In between  take out at every minute and mix well.


The mixture raises up with bubble.
The color changes slightly and that is the correct time to take out from microwave.


Allow to cool down little bit.
Then grease your palms and make balls and finally press pieces of almond shavings.
I took out after microwaving for 2 1/2 minutes. At that time the mixture raised up with bubbles but the color has not changed. I made some pedas at this point.
But the pedas have milk powders raw smell.

The pedas have to be rolled as quickly as possible.
Otherwise it is not possible to get smooth surfaced pedas.

Note :
The microwaving time depends on power setting of individual microwave and also on the quantity of ingredients taken.
If you microwave longer than required time then there is a chance that the mixture would get burned.
