Sweets for Diwali : Microwave Doodh (Milk) Peda

Diwali is just a day away, I am working on Sunday and through Diwali. With very little time on hand and determination to make sweets at home, I decided on a couple of quick fixes as suggested by dear Anasuya aunty.

I saw lots of variations of this quick and easy sweet recipe all over the internet and finally came up with this version. Never enjoyed microwave cooking as much as making instant Doodh Peda this morning. All you need is three ingredients and three minutes of microwave cooking time. Yes, that's right - just three minutes (or a little more in some microwaves) to make this delicious peda.

1 tin sweetened condensed milk
4 cups milk powder
50gms butter

Melt the butter for 10 seconds in a microwave safe dish. Combine the melted butter, condensed milk and milk powder and mix thoroughly. Microwave on high for three minutes, stirring every one minute. The cooking time actually varies for each microwave. The mixture will get to a crumble consistency - that is when you know it is done. Remove from microwave and allow to cool. Grease palms and form small round pedas. Decorate with dry fruits.


  1. Great thoughts you got there, believe I may possibly try just some of it throughout my daily life.
