About Recipe for Dudh Peda
Dudh Peda is a delicious sweet which one can relish all year round.
Peda is a famous Indian sweet made from Khoya. Khoya is basically dried milk. Khoya is a good source of proteins and a variety of vitamins.
It is also a good option for those on a low-calorie diet as it is a very low-calorie food item.
Sweets are those delicacies that are an inherent part of every Indian festival and function, be it Diwali, a housewarming party, or a wedding function. And one of the most popular desserts during these occasions is doodh peda.
The key to making delicious Dudh peda is in the ingredients and method of preparation. The best part of this recipe is that it requires only full cream milk and sugar to make these desserts. The only time-consuming step is making the milk solids, which took me around 1.5 to 2 hours to get the khoya.
Furthermore, you must keep stirring the milk while making khoya or it will stick to the bottom and finally burn. There is no shortcut for this step, you must complete it until it solidifies.
But then nothing compares the homemade peda made at home.
However, most people would rather order them from a sweet shop than make them at home. Maybe they think it’s a difficult dessert to make.
Doodh Pedas, in fact, are one of the easiest and simplest sweets I’ve ever made. So do check out my way of making this delicious dessert from scratch at home.
