  4. Switch off the flame and allow it to become warm. Take little butter or ghee in your hands and start making round shaped ladoos from the dough. Place some chopped pistachios in the middle of each peda and serve.


Milk Peda must be refrigerated if keeping for more than one day.

Chef Tips:

  1. You can spread the dough and roll with the rolling pin, just like we do for making chapati, but slightly thicker,  and use a cookie cutter to get cute shaped Milk peda’s.
  2. Always store them in an air-tight container and use within 2 days (If kept open).
  3. These yummy homemade Milk Peda can be refrigerated for 4-5 days.

      Hi parul,
      I have used sweetened condensed milk for making my pedas and it already contains sugar. Hence sugar is not added in these pedas.
