Quick Milk Peda / Fudge (using less butter)

Pedas are an Indian sweets that are delicious and very popular throughout the India and are often served as "Prasad" during auspicious festivals. The microwave milk peda recipe can be prepared within minutes. This is so easy to prepare and hardly takes any time at all. I made this Pedas as a Prasad for Ganesh Chathurthi and used less butter.
Make these Pedas for Vinayaka chathurthi with this quick and easy recipe!


  • 2 and 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
  • 1 and 1/2 cups  Instant non-fat milk powder
  • pinch of saffron (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cardamom powder
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pistachios for Garnish (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon charoli / chirongi nuts for garnish (optional)

Method :
  1. Melt the butter in a microwave bowl for 30 seconds.
  2. Mix together the condensed milk, milk powder and melted butter in a microwave bowl.
  3. Microwave it for two minutes. Remove and stir it thoroughly with cardamom powder and saffron.
  4. Again microwave it for 1 more minute. Depending on microwave power, you may need to microwave another 20-30 seconds.
  5. Remove from microwave and let it cool for sometime (5-7minutes).
  6. Divide them equally into small desired sized balls. Shape them into pedas
    (grease your palm before shaping them into balls, so that it does not stick onto to your hands).
  7. Now for a beautiful design, use butter knife to mark lines on pedas.
  8. Garnish Pedas with Pistacho or charoli / chirongi nuts along with saffron.
  9. Pedas are ready and keep refrigerated.

: Do not over microwave otherwise it will become dry.

  2. I tried the similar recipe before and the pedas were chewy. Not sure how to overcome that problem.
