Easy easy Doodh Peda/Pala kova

Posted by PicasaI have a sweet tooth and anything with milk, first to grab.Needless to say Doodh peda is my most favorite sweet but I feel it is hard to prepare.Mom used to make it with gallons of milk continuously stirring for hours together.To be honest I don't have that patience and want something easy and quick to prepare without compromising in taste.This is one of such recipe and taste is very much close to traditionally made palakova

Sweetened Condensed Milk-1can(Preferably Nestle brand)
Ghee 2tsp
Curd-2tsp(You can substitute with yogurt)
Cardamom powder-1tsp
Pistachios or almonds for garnishing


  1. Mix all the ingredients and microwave it on high power for 6-7 minutes(Always use the bowl which is double the size of contents as contents may over flow the vessel.Keep an eye on it and never go away from the microwave.I suggest you to take out bowl for every 1 minute. Be careful, the bowl will be very hot and take the help of oven mitt to handle it.)
  2. After 6 minutes,transfer the mixture into a pan and cook it on medium flame(On stove top) for  15-20 minutes by frequently stirring it.
  3. Now add the cardamom powder and switch off the flame.
  4. Transfer it to a plate greased with ghee and garnish with almonds or pistachios
  5. Let it cool and cut into desired shapes.
