Ingredients

FOR PEDAS

  • 2 cups Milk Powder
  • 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Milk/Cream
  • 1/4 cup Ghee/Clarified Butter
  • 1/2 cup Desiccated unsweetened Coconut

GARNISH

  • - - Saffron strands
  • - - Cardamom Powder to sprinkle on top

Instructions

  • In a large bowl combine milk powder, coconut, and powdered sugar in a bowl. Knead it with your hands to combine.
  • Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed pan. Add the above mixture. Mix it well.
  • Add cream and cook until the mixture starts to come together like dough (7-9 minutes). Maintain the heat at the low-medium setting. This mixture can get burned pretty quickly so, please be very careful and keep stirring. The cooked mixture will be grainy at this point. No worries, take it off the flame.
  • Allow it to cool. The mixture will become firm as it cools. When it's comfortable to touch, knead the dough until its smooth and no longer grainy.
  • Grease your hands and take about a golf ball size of dough and roll it into your hands. Flatten the ball.

Notes

 
IMPORTANT STEP!
✔ When it is comfortable to touch, knead the dough with your hands for 4-5 minutes. This step is important because it will get rid of all the lumps that are formed during cooking the mixture and result in smoothly textured pedas. 
✔ Grease your hands and take about a golf ball size of dough and roll it into your hands. Flatten the ball. Your peda is ready, repeat the process with rest of the mixture. 
These pedas will be loved by almost everyone, regardless of age or gender.
