Milk peda | Milma peda | Kukskitchen

Happy Diwali folks!!!

Back from another busy and fun-filled day at work, I started to think what can I make for Diwali. Asked my adviser Mr Son, who chose milk peda. I was pleased as I had all the ingredients in my store cupboard to make it, given that it doesn't take much ingredients anyway. 

Milma peda was a childhood favourite of mine. Those days one could get hands on one only from a milma booth. They still do it after all these years and it still tastes the same. Any fellow milma peda lovers in there!!!

With that thought......

A few things before we start:
  • Use fat free condensed milk and milk powder for a less guilt pleasure
  • Thick bottomed pan helps control the heat keeping the mixture from burning
  • I used an ice cube tray to shape my pedas. Use any old mould.
  • All the steps can be done in a microwave too.

An excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and a passionate singer,  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
